Join 12,000 friends and 300,000 water ballons to help set a new Guinness World Records for the largest water balloon fight!  The current record is held by the University of Kentucky in 2011 with 8,957 participants, and 175,141 water balloons. 

Party Camp will celebrate everything they love about summer and raise money to send kids from Children’s Hospital to summer camp. The day will consist of summer camp activities, a massive beer garden, multitude of food trucks, live musical performances and headline with an official Guinness World Record attempt for the world’s largest water balloon fight.

“The Guinness World Record protocol is everyone must throw at least one water balloon within a 90 second period, but with 300,000 water balloons, we think the water balloon battle will last 10 to 12 minutes,” says Neil Bergquist, the director of the event, called Party Camp.
