Seattle Water Balloon Fight To Support Kids Going to Camp


An attempt to break the world record for largest water balloon fight in Seattle will help send kids from the city’s Children’s Hospital to summer camp at Camp Korey.

The record breaking feat will be attempted on August 17 as part of a one-day “adult summer camp” event at Seattle Center called Party Camp. About 12,000 people are expected to attend and participate hurling 300,000 water balloons. Party Camp will also include traditional camp games, a water balloon toss competition, friendship bracelet making and a live music talent show.

Tickets for Party Camp are $25 with a $12 Early Bird deal available through LivingSocial for a limited time. Regular tickets and information about Party Camp are available at Additional announcements, updates and promotions can be found through Party Camp’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram. Party Camp is for participants 18 years and older.

The current water balloon fight record was previously set by the University of Kentucky in 2011 with 8,987 participants and 175,141 water balloons; and unofficially broken by the students with 11,660 participants and 236,484 water balloons in 2012.
