It’s snow joke – Saskatoon is officially a world record holder.
The city is now featured in the Guinness Book of World Records because of a bunch of snowballs.
On Jan. 31, Victoria Park was packed with close to 20,000 people in an effort to knock off Seattle for the world’s largest snowball fight.
A couple months later, Guinness has verified 7,681 people took part in the challenge.
Seattle’s number was 5,834.
“It was just like a sea of people and a sea of snowballs,” organizer and Canadian snowball fight team captain Nathan Thoen told CKOM on Jan. 31.
The assault in Victoria Park lasted only a minute and a large portion of it was focused on Thoen and comedian Rick Mercer, who stood atop a mound of snow.
The snowball fight was organized by tourism groups in Saskatoon along with members of Canada’s snowball fighting team.
The challenge closed out the nine-day PotashCorp Wintershines Festival.
