10th Annual "World Sword Swallower's Day"
Ripley's Believe It ir Not
Atlantic City, NJ
In Atlantic City, David Peyre-Ferry will demonstrate his incredible sword swallowing skills, which include swallowing a sword while lying on a bed of nails! The show will start at 2:00 pm with the Big Swallow finale at 2:25 pm. The show is FREE and will take place at Ripley's Atlantic City Odditorium.
The event was created to recognize the handful of people in the world who can swallow swords, an ancient art that dates back some 4,000 years. The day also raises awareness of the contributions sword swallowers have made to the fields of medicine and science and raises money for esophageal cancer research.
