Thousands of people packed the DECC Friday for this year's Michelina's All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner. Organizers say it took more than 8,000 pounds of ingredients to make the spaghetti alone. New this year - meatballs.

"There are probably 50 people at any given time involved in serving the spaghetti," Katie Cozzi said. "It's just fun to see all the people from all around not only from around the country but from different countries as well."

The $12 meal includes more pasta than you could ever eat. Cozzi said she has seen some people come back five or six times for more food.

"It's a nice environment, nice town, love Lake Superior," said runner Carl DeLand.
