The record goes to a picnic pyramid that was found a few days earlier at Riverfront Park. That monster was made up of 45 tables, which put it at roughly the same height as the Paulsen Building penthouse.

The still-unknown builders topped it with festive traffic reflector lights. They also left the following in-yer-face note to park employees:
“We heard that our riverfront table pyramids cost $500 each to remove,” it read, “yet they only took 4 teens 25 min to assemble sans equipment! Please stop wasting taxpayer dollars.”
