World Record for Giant shrimp cocktail on the line at Civic Center Park

El Coco Pirata restaurant will bring a festival called Playero Fest to the Mile High City next month. 

The one-of-a-kind Playero Fest, or Beachy Fest in English, is a multicultural festival that will bring music, food, games and specialty vendors to Denver's Civic Center Park on Sunday Aug. 7 from 11:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m. 

The event will host special guests like the six-time World Boxing Champion Julio Cesar Chavez, Grammy Winner Banda el Limon, former Colorado Rockies player Vinny Castilla and the Denver Broncos' mascot, Miles, and cheerleaders. 

During the event, el Coco Pirata restaurant will try to break the Guinness World Record with a giant shrimp cocktail weighing 1,600 Kg (3,520 Lbs.), a record currently held by the City of Cartagena de Indias with the largest shrimp cocktail of 1,320 Kg (2,910 Lb 1.6 oz) prepared in Colombia in 2015.

A 10-foot cocktail glass specially made in Guadalajara by famed artist Camilo Ramírez will be used.
