Imperial Toy Sponsors Record Breaking Water Balloon Fight In Lexington!

350,000 KAOS water balloons will be tossed this year!

LEXINGTON, July 29, 2015 - After six amazing years of water balloon fights, the Christian Student Fellowship (CSF) at the University of Kentucky will host their seventh campus-wide battle, sponsored by Imperial Toy on August 28, 2015.

CSF first attempted to break the world record in 2008 and successfully did so in 2009 and 2011 after receiving certificates from the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest water balloon fight. Their largest fight consisted of 8,957 participants, using over 175,000 water balloons. (See footage from the fight here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cl3VEyseLc)

This year, Imperial Toy is providing 350,000 KAOS water balloons and the University is anticipating 15,000 people to attend.

"2015 will be our first water balloon fight after a year hiatus," said Brian Marshall, CSF member. "With the help of Imperial Toy, we hope to break our previous record and achieve water balloon domination by starting the fight earlier in the evening. We are excited for another great night and are expecting to have more balloons than ever before!"

"Our KAOS water balloons are a huge portion of our outdoor business and we love getting involved in community events," Said Art Hirsch, President, Imperial Toy. "We can't wait to see the turn out for 2015 and are aiming to again, break the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest water balloon fight."

"We are so thrilled to once again be sponsoring the CSF University of Kentucky water balloon fight," said Peter Tiger, President, Imperial Toy. "Our KAOS water balloons are very popular and we can't wait to see the epic battle that the school is predicting for this year."
