A Fizzing End to Summer – Guinness World Record attempt on August 8th

30 July 2009

The Vestavia Hills High School Band has high ambitions.  This coming New Years, they will be marching the Mayor’s parade in London, England.  To pay for the trip, they have come up with a stunt that could also land them on the list of Guinness World Records.


  1. One 2-liter Diet Coke per person
  2. Seven Mentos candies
  3. Several thousand friends and neighbors


“Cascading cola geyser of incredible proportions” – the resulting geyser will spray as high as 20 feet into the air for about 10 seconds

Limited parking will be available in the high school parking lots with free shuttle parking available nearby. Look for signs along Highway 31 directing you to the shuttle locations. Gates open at 7:30 a.m. with the big “splash” at 9. Arrive early to make sure you won’t miss out on a second of this record-setting experience. Event proceeds benefit VHHS Band.

The date: Saturday August 8, 2009 (rain or shine)
The time: 9 AM (promptly)
The place: Vestavia Hills High School football stadium
Who – EVERYONE is invited
Cost – $5 per person. Includes all supplies. Pay at the gate (cash, please)

For more information on how your group can be a part of this event, contact Millie Whitacre (205-516-8889).

    Small world. I’m an alumnus of the VHHS band as well as of KU-Leuven, which currently holds the mentos fountain record.
