The event starts at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 7, on the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds. In addition to the water-balloon fight, attendees can rock out to a battle of the bands, peruse food and souvenir vendors, or enter to win giveaways and raffle prizes from participating vendors.
World's Largest Water Balloon Fight 2012
In 2011, James Bowser tried setting the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest human-heart formation. Eleven thousand people established the record elsewhere, but few showed up for James’s event. That same year, another organization broke the record for the world’s largest water-balloon fight with 175,141 balloons chucked at 8,957 attendees. On hearing of their success, James—a lifelong water-balloon-fight devotee—decided to make another bid for the record books. For the World's Largest Water Balloon Fight 2012, he aims to congregate 15,000–30,000 participants to wage a war of water with half a million balloons. Alongside balloon-flinging festivities, the World's Largest Water Balloon Fight 2012 also hosts giveaways and raffles supplied by onsite vendors, a battle of the bands, and the chance to break the record for the longest clothesline.
