It's snow joke: Saskatoon has world record for biggest snowball fight

Saskatoon is officially a world record holder because of a bunch of snowballs.

Guinness World Records has confirmed that the Saskatchewan city held the largest-ever snowball fight on Jan. 31 when 7,681 people took part.

The previous record was held by Seattle, but that city had almost 2,000 fewer participants.

The fight was organized by tourism groups in Saskatoon along with members of Canada’s snowball-fighting team.

The wintry assault in Victoria Park lasted only a minute.
