Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, with the help of Dallas / Fort Worth, broke the Guinness Book of World Records with the Biggest Shaving Cream Pie Fight On Earth! A total of 714 participants entered the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Pie Fight Battlezone on AT&T Plaza in front of the American Airlines Center. The participants withstood 102 degree temperature Tuesday evening for the Guinness World Records attempt.
Guinness World Records Adjudicator, Sara Wilcox was present at the attempt by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. “Guinness World Records is all about ordinary people doing extraordinary things and everyone here tonight had an excellent time and I’m very happy to verify this record.”
The biggest shaving cream pie fight is a new record category, and had a minimum requirement of 684 participants. Ringling Bros. had 714 participants. The record attempt is based on the old record for the largest custard pie fight, which has since been rested due to concerns about wasting food. The largest custard pie fight record was held by Drake University, and was achieved at the Olmsted Student Center Parking lot in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 9, 2011.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Funnyatrics Clown Program at Children’s Medical Center and Lewisville Life and Fire Safety Clowns programs. Both programs operate solely on donations by the general public and corporations.
The Biggest Shaving Cream Pie Fight also kicked off the arrival of FULLY CHARGED, the exciting new circus show from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey coming to Dallas, August 1-12 and Ft Worth, August 15-19. For tickets and show schedules, visit www.Ringling.com.
