A three-block span of ice cream, chocolate syrup and cherries in downtown White Bear Lake is what the owner of Grandma's Bakery envisions as the world's longest sundae.

The Pioneer Press reports on June 20, hundreds of volunteers will help assemble and eat more than 200 gallons of vanilla ice cream in a massive dish at least a thousand feet long along 4th Street between Washington and Stewart avenues.

The bakery hopes to break the current record set last year in Cavalier, N.D. where 160 people made a sundae just over 670 feet long.

See how it was done:

The ice cream from the Chocolate Shoppe in Madison, Wis., hundreds of gallons of chocolate sauce from Ghirardelli in San Francisco and strawberries from the Pine Tree Apple Orchard in White Bear Lake were all donated for the event.

The sundae will also be topped off with 100 cans of whip cream and 3,700 cherries.

Organizers hope to raise more than $10,000 for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of the White Bear Lake Area, according to the newspaper.
