World Sword Swallower’s Day 2012

More than 20 sword swallowers will be “dropping swords” at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums worldwide at 2:25pm on February 25, in celebration of the 6th annual World Sword Swallower’s Day.

In excess of 125 feet of solid steel is set to go down the hatch – hopefully without a scratch. In New York City, Keith Nelson will headline a free sword swallowing show outside Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium, located at 234 West 42nd Street. The show will start at 1:30pm local time and culminate with an official “swallow” at 2:25:12 pm to coincide with the 2/25/12 date.

World Sword Swallower’s Day was founded by the Sword Swallowers Association International (SSAI) and is co-sponsored by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
