World’s Biggest Snowball Fight – Seattle Sets a Record

Recently about 5,800 people gathered near the Space Needle in Seattle to attempt a world record for the world’s biggest snowball fight. All I’m thinking is “C’mon Missoula, we can beat that record.”

Granted, 5,800 people is a lot. But not really. Offer up some drink specials downtown, maybe a couple sweet band’s and “BOOM” we got ourselves a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records.

Let’s face it, Seattle rarely ever gets snow. They had to truck their snow in from the Cascade mountains for this event. We got plenty of snow already under our feet.That is the least of our worries.

According to the Huffington Post

More than 30 truckloads of snow were brought in from Cascades for Saturday’s event, which included a snow fort building competition and pub crawl. Snow Day was a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of King County.

The event was witnessed by a Guinness adjudicator who verified a count of 5,834 and presented a record certificate, said a spokeswoman for the Guinness World Records office in New York. Seattle beat the previous record of about 5,400 at a 2010 snowball fight in South Korea.


The snowball fight only lasted a minute and a half, but random battles took place through the night. This sounds like a damn good time Missoula. What do we have to do to make it happen? Sign me up.
