Albuquerque to host record-breaking party

February 1, 2017 by  

This spring, residents of Albuquerque are invited to attend an event that will give them a chance to enter the record books.

As part of the southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest, the organizers have planned an attempt at hosting the largest hot chocolate party ever. If enough people come out, it will be certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

The hosts will provide complimentary hot chocolate, as well as free sweets such as donuts, cookies, and cake. To qualify for the record, each participant must stay in the party room for at least half an hour. As a memento of the occasion, all those who took part will receive a commemorative mug, as well as a serving of Guittard hot chocolate, a baked treat, a personalized World’s Largest Hot Chocolate Party certificate, a photo of the participants, and a weekend pass to the festival itself. Custom drinkware can be designed for an event like this by a printer.

This attempt at breaking the Guinness record will take place on March 25 in the festival’s venue at 300 San Pedro NE. Those who will be taking part are asked to arrive by no later than 9:00 am. It will be limited to only 250 people, so those who are interested are asked to register ahead of time through the event’s website.
