Water balloon fight not a record breaker — next year, it’s on!

Saturday's not-quite-record-breaking water balloon fight to benefit Camp Twin Lakes. AJC/Jamie Gumbrecht.

After all the water balloons were thrown everybody was soaked, the 2,107 folks at The Masquerade on Saturday hadn’t broken the record for the world’s largest water balloon fight. (Missed it? Here are photos from the water balloon fight and some very wet video.)

For now, organizers say, the Guinness World Record still belongs to a 2,800-person fight from a few years ago.

Saturday’s $5 admission fees went to non-profit Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, but there’s no totaled-up dollar amount yet. A lot of younger kids who attended arrived with bags full of coins, and they can take a while to count, said balloon fight organizer Jaynie Coffee, of Door 44.

Don’t be too disappointed, though: Coffee said they’ll definitely do it again next year.
