TULSA, Oklahoma -- Some Tulsans are getting a much-needed taste of summer.

Chick-Fil-A and Josh's Sno Shack teamed up to try and create the world's largest shaved ice Thursday near 71st and Garnett.

"We're calling it shaved ice because if you look at the records, everyone calls their's snow cones, so we thought maybe on a technicality we can say we're making the world's biggest shaved ice," Josh Juarez, owner of Josh's Sno Shack, said.

The Sno Shack took the fresh snow, put it into ice coolers, and then shaved it.  The creation stood 13-feet tall. 

Organizers say they literally used tons of ice. To celebrate they were giving away free food, hot chocolate and, of course, shaved ice.

"It's freezing, but if you dress warm it's kinda like just playing in the snow except its got syrup on it. So, it's good," Juarez said.

If the giant shaved ice makes it into the world record books, it wouldn't be the first at this Chick-Fil-A location. They also have records for the world's largest lemonade, hand-spun milkshake and sweet tea.
