World’s Largest Water Balloon Fight Involves 9,000 People Flinging Over 175,000 Balloons

I remember my first water balloon fight as if it were yesterday. I probably would’ve filled up those darned balloons way quicker if I had one of these Tie Knot Water Balloon Fillers, because I was clobbered and drenched to the bones by my unrelenting cousins.

Those sure were the good old days.

Largest Water Balloon Fight

Now take that memory, take me and my cousins out of the equation (okay, so basically that was the whole memory, but let’s just keep the setting), squeeze inĀ 8,957 guys and girls, and 175,141 water balloons, and you’ve got yourself the world’s largest water balloon fight for the record books!

The event was organized by the University of Kentucky’s Christian Student Fellowship, which set out to break the record set by Brigham Young University last year. Since the latter only had aboutĀ 3,927 participants, I think it’s safe to say that University of Kentucky gets the top spot – for now.
