East Hants May Have Broken A World Record This Weekend!

There were 628 people gathered at the East Hants Community Centre in Lantz, back on the weekend to try and break the Guinness World Record for largest washer toss tournament.

 

 

The event was put together as part of Tide Fest, a first-year festival to support the local area. Kody Blois, president of The Come Home East Hants Association said the current record is held in Wise County, Texas with 486 participants.

 

Kody says they plan to submit an official package right away. So long as its verified, East Hants will hold the new record of 628 participants!  

 

People came from as far as Newfoundland, Alberta and Ohio for the washer toss tourney.

 

Tide Fest was developed to create a festival that could benefit local initiatives in the community and it raised at least $12,000! It was proudly supported by Hot Country 1035.
