Who doesn't like a delicious key lime pie? Better yet, how about a really large one?

  • Fla. Key Lime Pie Festival takes place on Saturday
  • Organizers creating 12-foot in diameter pie
  • Pie will weigh about 1,000 pounds

On Saturday, the 7th annual Florida Key Lime Pie Festival takes over Merritt Island's Brevard Veterans Memorial Park.

Organizers will be creating a 12-foot in diameter pie, as they try to set a world record.

Spectrum News 13 photos show the huge tin being fabricated at a Cocoa metal shop.

Inside the tin will be 480 cups of graham cracker crust, and nearly 13,000 ounces of filling. This adds up to 132 gallons of pie weighing 1,000 pounds.

The Guinness World Record for the largest Key Lime Pie was set in 1998, and it was seven feet in diameter.

The pie will be at the festival, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Sprectrum News 13's Eric Levy will emcee the festival.
