It has a 20-foot diameter and weights 3,699 pounds!
The massive pie took over thirteen hours to bake in a specially made oven. Crews began actually baking the pie at midnight on Friday. They gave it about two hours to cool on Saturday before weighing it and splitting it up into roughly 5,000 slices to feed the hungry crowd.
