Locally grown lettuce, cabbage, radishes, celery, carrots, onions, zucchini, cucumbers and peppers are planned for the 680-foot-long salad bar in Hudsonville. Salads will be served from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on July 27.

Organizers want to set a Guinness World Records mark for the longest continuous salad bar. All those vegetables are expected to weigh nearly 5,000 pounds.

Guinness says the current record was set by a 660-foot, 4,548-pound salad bar in South Africa in 2002.

Hudsonville's world-record attempt is part of the Saladbowl Bash, which also includes live entertainment, vendor booths, a bike parade and a spelling bee.
