STO. TOMAS, Pangasinan – This town has clinched another Guinness world record.
“We are thrilled to inform you that your application for the longest line of tables has been successful. You are now the Guinness world record holder,” read an email received by Mayor Timoteo Villar III from the Guinness records management team on Wednesday.
The town set up an uninterrupted line of tables six kilometers long on April 2.
The feat bested the record of 4.3 kilometers held by Alexandria, Egypt.
“This is another pride of our humble town and…proof that our unity is the key to achieving greater honor,”  Villar said.
He said the town is “living up to its reputation as having the most disciplined, cooperative and united people.”
The same line of tables was used as Sto. Tomas bids for the longest picnic line. At least 3,711 kilos of pork for the town’s recipe of adobo with corn, 3,600 kilos of vegetables and 57 cavans of rice were cooked and served to residents.
Villar said they have yet to submit the documentation for the longest picnic line, which is held by Ontario, Canada at 2,277 meters.
”It will be the town’s third Guinness record if we will be successful again,” he said.

Sto. Tomas also holds the Guinness world record for the longest barbecue for setting up 3,803.96 meters of interconnected grills on Feb. 11, 2008. A total of 3,500 cooks grilled 93,540 pieces of corn.
