Think your water-balloon-fight days are behind you? You can re-live the chaos at 4 p.m. Saturday to raise money to send kids from Children’s Hospital to Camp Korey.

Organizers are trying to break the official Guinness World Record for the largest water-balloon fight and are expecting more than 12,000 participants.

Buying a $25 ticket will get you into the Seattle Party Camp from noon to 7 p.m. at Seattle Center’s International Fountain and Fisher Plaza.

The rules? You must be at least 14 years old, do not aim for the head, do not bring a water-balloon launcher and make at least one friend. For more information, go to

Not a fighter? You could always volunteer to help fill about 300,000 water balloons.
