Nearly 700 students joined in the effort to break the Guinness World Record for largest custard pie fight in the Drake University Olmsted Center parking lot.
The record required more than 671 participants.
The planning committee wasn’t able to give exact figures at the time of the event, but Tasha Stiger, director of campus programming and Student Activities Board adviser said she believes Drake’s crowd eked out a new record.
Students will submit an evidence pack with proof of participation numbers and media coverage of the event to the Guinness World Records authorities before a record can be confirmed.
Over 1700 custard pies were made for the event.
