Party On! NOLA Holds Record for Biggest Halloween Bash

The NFL knew exactly what it was doing when it scheduled 2010 defending Super Bowl champs the New Orleans Saints against 2009's winner, the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Halloween edition of Sunday Night Football. In honor of such a momentous game — which the Saints won, mind you — SNF decided to go even bigger with a bid on breaking the record for largest Halloween party. 17,777 people packed into the Superdome to shatter the previous record of 508. According to Guinness, the Pelican State has a few other interesting records under its belt as well, including fastest crocheter, if you're into that.
