Beginning at 9 a.m. on marathon day, a limited number of visitors to the Running Festival's Celebration Village will be able to help Musselman's make history by adding BIG CUP cups of Apple Sauce to an oversized bowl. Admission to Celebration Village, which will be located in the M&T Bank Stadium's Parking Lot C, is free and open to the public as well as marathon runners and spectators. The first 100 contributors to the Guinness World Records attempt will also receive a free T-shirt commemorating the experience. A Guinness World Records official will inspect the bowl at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 12 and determine whether the Musselman's bowl constitutes the world's Largest Bowl of Apple Sauce. Even if it doesn't work out, you will be able to sample Musselman's new line of Big Cup applesauce.
