World Sword Swallower’s Day 2012
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium (234 W. 42nd St., Manhattan)
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!
