What do you get when you combine 5,834 people with 81 tons of snow? You get the World’s Largest Snowball Fight!
On January 12, 2013 Seattle, WA made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the World’s Largest Snowball Fight. The title had previously belonged to the Republic of Korea. It took a mere 90 seconds to break the record, in a city that doesn’t get snow.
Not only did the residents of Seattle have fun, they also managed to raise $50,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of King County. These clubs provide meaningful after-school activities for children, and provide them will the skills they need for their futures.
