San Carlos City Sets World Record for Largest Mango Pie

Residents of 86 villages in San Carlos City, Pangasinan took part in making a 100-square-meter mango pie, big enough to fill a gymnasium - which sets the world record for the Largest Mango Pie. The bid for the World's Largest Mango Pie is one of the event highlights of San Carlos City's Mango-Bamboo Festival 2011.
