Guinness World Records on hand to Certify New Record at November 21 Ceremony in Downtown Chicago On Tuesday morning, Nov. 21, the World`s Largest Rubberband Ball, a 4,000+-pound ball constructed of more than 175,000 rubberbands, was unveiled by OfficeMax in a weigh-in ceremony in downtown Chicago. Guinness World Records was on hand to document the event and certify that the mammoth ball, which has a circumference of 19 feet, had broken the former record set by John Bain, whose ball weighed in at 3,120 pounds. Steve Milton, 26, creator of the World`s Largest Rubber Band Ball, with his 6-year-old son Bryce, started his ball in November 2005 with a number of small OfficeMax rubberbands. Today the ball stands 5½ feet-high and has a circumference of 19 feet. After the November 21 Guinness World Record weighing, the newly-crowned Largest Rubberband Ball will celebrate its coronation by appearing in the November 23 McDonald`s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time in its hometown of Chicago. The World`s Largest Rubberband Ball will be exhibited throughout December 2006 and January 2007 at 14 of the new and remodeled OfficeMax stores across Chicago.
