When the world's largest wheel of cheese rolls into Concord, Mass., on December 1, it will be greeted by a 200-foot red carpet, a "raucous crowd of townspeople, and The Crucolo Dancers (a horde of costumed children tossing chunks of cheese)," according to a press release.
The 400-pound chunk of crucolo cheese will travel for a month before arriving at the Concord Cheese Shop, where it will be sold off in bits and pieces for $19.99 per pound.
This is the second annual cheese celebration, since the town received a 400-pound wheel of cruculo last year as well. So, if you're in the neighborhood of Walden Street in Concord, you'll get to see a wheel of cheese "rolled through the main shopping district on a red carpet with balloons, dancers, kids, cameras and flying chunks o’ cheese."
