The World’s Longest Taco – 1973

By Kevin Hunt

When I was a young adult, we held a unique activity in the Tri-Stake Center (maybe it was then known as the Inter-Stake Center).  This event was held in June of 1973.  It was our plan to construct the world’s largest “taco”.  The stipulation was that the taco shells and the meat had to run continuous (touching).  We set up 1,500 feet of table in the center (that is equivalent to 5 football fields laid end to end) and then proceeded to construct our giant taco.  It was amazing how fast the taco got built by the 200 or so young adults.  And after it was constructed, we all got to eat the tacos.  We certainly had all of the tacos that we wanted to eat that night.  We all ate five or more, it seems – and even the guests who heard of the event got their fill.
