If you've ever perused the Guinness Book of World Records, you'll see a lot of insane world records -- like the one for the most parmesan cheese wheels cracked simultaneously. The record was set by Whole Foods market on March 9, 2013, when a total of 426 cheese wheels were cracked at 28 different WFM markets worldwide at exactly 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The event was called Parmageddon, a fitting name to the cheesy stunt.

If for some reason you missed the fun, it's all going down tomorrow when Whole Foods attempts to break its own record at the Parmigiano Reggiano Crack Heard 'Round the World.
At exactly 3 p.m. Saturday, March 8, you can witness a world record being broken (hopefully) as you watch cheesemongers in your local Whole Foods crack an 85-pound wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano. They're going for the record, which means that at least 427 giant wheels of cheese will have to get cracked for the goal!
That's not all. There are lots of cheese freebies and fun in store, along with lots of photo ops. Here's a list of participating locations in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
