60-foot long banana split sets record at Portland retirement community

The goal was to raise money for Camp Sunshine, which helps kids with serious and terminal illnesses.

PORTLAND, Maine — People spent part of the hottest day of 2019 thus far creating the city's largest banana split at a retirement community.

The Woods at Canco hosted the event to raise money for Camp Sunshine, which helps kids with serious and terminal illnesses.

They raised more than $1,000 and Mayor Ethan Strimling was there to measure the record-breaking dessert. 

It measured 58 feet on initial measurement, but after the addition of a few more bowls of ice cream, bananas, and whipped cream, they topped out at 60 feet.
