On August 17th, Seattle attempted to host the world’s largest water balloon fight.

Although falling a couple thousand short of the record, they managed to raise $55,000 for Camp Korey, a local charity dedicated to transforming the lives of children with serious and life-altering medical conditions.

Around 4,000 people came out to the Seattle Center for the water balloon fight and had a great time throwing water balloons on a sunny day in Seattle.
