Did Saturday’s water balloon fight at the Masquerade break the Guinness World Record? No official count yet, and there probably won’t be for a day or so. Organizers say it’s not likely.
However, for a view of how wet and muddy everything got, here’s a water balloon fight photo gallery, from the fill-your-own-balloon station to the hose-yourself-off area.
I’m not sure that breaking the record really matters (at least until someone tries this again next year.) Camp Twin Lakes had a sack of $5 admission fees to take home and for a crowd that spent hours in the August Georgia sun, they were in good spirits. A burst of cold water will do it, especially considering I heard more than one person warn that balloons this big could cause a concussion.
Looking for more? Here’s a video of the first couple minutes of the fight, into the early stages of mud-diving.
