It's billed as the "World's Largest Twine Ball," although since 1950 when Francis A. Johnson wrapped his twine ball in Darwin Minnesota there have been larger and heavier ones constructed in Kansas and Wisconsin. Also, Branson, Missouri supposedly has what is now the largest twine ball in the world, but of course Branson would have something like that. Let's just say the Midwest is amazing.

The twine ball in Darwin (pop: 350) that Weird Al is singing about in his song "The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota" is under a gazebo in the center of town, and "Twine Ball Day" is held every year in Darwin on the second Saturday of August.
