Yakima’s Biggest _________?
Here at "The BIG Show" on KATS we are getting geared up for Yakima's BIGGEST Yard Sale on May 9 at J.M. Perry Tech.
With that, we wondered: What are some of Yakima's other "biggest" things?
Building: A.E. Larsen Building in downtown Yakima is 11 stories tall and 188 feet high to the tip of its flagpole
City: In Yakima County, outside of Yakima itself with 82,659 residents, obviously, is the city of Sunnyside. A 2010 estimate had them at roughly 15,298.
Snowstorm: The 24-hour snowfall record, officially recorded at the Yakima Air Terminal, was 13.6 inches in 1963.
Box of apples: The largest "box" of apples was 'packed in Yakima for shipment to the Detroit auction on a bid of $1,001. The stunt was part of Yakima's Apple Week. A train box car held about 75,600 apples.
Channel Catfish: Ross Kincaid holds the Washington state record for the largest Channel Catfish ever caught, weighing in at 36.2 pounds. Kincaid landed the fish at I-82 Pond No. 6 in September of 1999.
Yard Sale: Saturday, May 9 from 8-2 in the parking lot at Perry Tech, 2011 W. Washington -- across from the airport on Nob Hill Boulevard. More than 90 individual yard sales in one convenient location!
