JAMESTOWN, NY - More than a thousand people and more than 60 tons of grapes … that's what it took to break a world record for grape-stomping in Jamestown.
The event celebrated the region's rich Concord grape-growing history, along with TV icon and Jamestown native Lucille Ball.
Two On Your Side's Erica Brecher learned how the big event ties both together.
Stompers dressed up in the iconic costume Lucy wore in the famous "Lucy's Italian Movie" episode, where Lucy stomps grapes.
"I grew up watching Lucy . My parents watched it, and that's just what we grew up on," said Renekah Bertel in her Lucy grab, "so I love all sorts of the different episodes. When they asked me to do this I was like absolutely!"
People came from all over, like Sonya Brennan from California. "We're here to stomp some grapes and be in the world record book," she said.
