King County's Marymoor Park
Don’t miss the upcoming attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest pie fight at 12pm on Sunday, May 4th at King County’s Marymoor Park in Redmond. All Proceeds go to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital.
At least 816 Seattle residents are needed to attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for the largest pie fight. The current record for a pie fight stands at 815.
Participants are advised to register online before the event and to arrive before noon on May 4thh to be included in the World Record. All ages and physical abilities are welcome.
“It’s not a question of who wants to get ‘pied’ in the face with custard and whipped cream, but rather, who doesn’t,” says event founder, Domenic Barbero. He is hoping Seattle area residents of all ages join in the attempt.
While a pie fight in itself is a lot of fun, this event is meaningful because it will contribute to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Participants are encouraged to make a donation to benefit the hospital. Event Coordinator Stephanie Kukuruza says, “We hope to work with local businesses to cover event costs and our goal is to raise $10,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital.”
Event Specialist, Katie Fath of Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation stated, “Seattle Children’s relies on the community to help fulfill its promise to treat all children in our region regardless of their family’s ability to pay. There are so many creative ways that people support us and a Pie Fight sounded like such a fun idea! It’s a time to have fun and support this great community resource.”
Seattle Filmmaker, Domenic Barbero, and others local filmmakers will be filming the event. Kukuruza says, “It’s going to be beautiful, messy and delicious Seattle fun. You don’t want to miss it!”
