World's Largest Ball of Twine

Cawker City Kansas


Featured on the World's Largest Things  T-Shirt!

As you may have already read in the Minnesota Twine Ball page, the right to call your creation the World’s Largest is highly disputed. I personally strongly believe in two, am withholding opinion one one ‘till I see it myself, and am a strong non-believer in the fourth. This one is the Largest Built by a Community, one of the few World’s Largest Things that Keeps Growing.

The World's Largest Ball of Twine celebrated its  50th Birthday with a big shindig in Cawker City Kansas. The whole town rallied around the ball at the annual Twine-A-Thon held August 15, 16, 17 2003. To augment the occasion, the town decided to enlarge their festivities, including a birthday party and an exstensive downtown revitalization.
