Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Invites Texas to The Biggest Shaving Cream Pie Fight On Earth in Guinness World Records® Attempt
July 06, 2012
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® invites families and businesses to join in ultimate shaving cream chaos on Tuesday, July 31, 6 p.m. as The Greatest Show On Earth® teams up with two premier Texas clowning programs in a Guinness World Records® attempt for the largest shaving cream pie fight ever held. The event will take place outside American Airlines Center in AT&T Plaza. The arena is located at 2500 Victory Avenue, Dallas, TX 75219.
The Biggest Shaving Cream Pie Fight On Earth is a celebratory event to kick-off International Clown Week and the Dallas/Fort Worth debut of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents FULLY CHARGED(SM). According to Clowns of America International, August 1-7 is "International Clown Week," which honors the charitable activities of clowns and clowning, as first proclaimed by the late Richard Nixon in 1971. Ringling Bros. Clown Alley will pay tribute to Children's Medical Center's Funnyatrics therapeutic clown program and Lewisville Life and Fire Safety Clowns. All three clowning teams will provide pie-ing tips and lead participants in the Biggest Shaving Cream Pie Fight On Earth with the hopes of shattering the current record.
The largest shaving cream pie fight is a new record category, and has a minimum requirement of 684 participants. It 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 held at the Olmsted Student Center Parking lot in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 9, 2011. At the July 31 event, a Guinness World Records® adjudicator will be in attendance to declare whether or not the current world record has been defeated.
To participate in this pie-throwing extravaganza, participants must be at least 12-years-old and register in advance at www.RinglingPieFight.com. In addition to participating in an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, each registered participant will receive one each of a Certificate of Participation and souvenir premium item. The last day to register online is Tuesday, July 31 at Noon. However, people may register in-person at the event.
