Shaving Cream Pie Fight Attempts to Set World Record

Students, faculty, staff and members of the Kirksville community are all being asked to help break a Guinness world record, all in effort to support the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.
At 6 p.m. Oct. 2 in the parking lot at the corner of Franklin and Patterson streets, Truman will attempt to conduct “the world’s largest shaving cream pie fight.” The current record stands at 865 participants. To meet their goal of 1,100 participants, organizers of the Truman event are inviting everyone to participate.
Participants are asked to contribute $2, or bring two non-perishable food items, to the event. All proceeds and food items will go directly to the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri. 
Paired with Oktoberfest, taking place earlier that day, attendees will be given the option to sign up ahead of time permitting them entry to the event without needing to wait in line. Sign-ups will also be available at the entrance to the event at 6 p.m.
Truman’s Greek Life Office, Center for Student Involvement and the SERVE Center will be officiating the world record attempt. For more information, contact Joe Gebhart at
