World Sword Swallower’s Day

Each year, on the last Saturday of February, sword swallowers from around the world gather at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! locations to participate in this momentous event. The “simultaneous” swallow at 2:22PM on 2/22/14 promises to deliver some astounding sword swallow attempts and amazing physical feats!

Captain Stab-Tuggo, of Captain & Maybelle, will be appearing at the Gatlinburg, TN Ripley’s, alongside fellow sword swallower, Travis Fessler, of the duo Pickled Bros. Sideshow. This is Captain’s 5th year participating in this historical event and his 2nd year in Gatlinburg. WWSD has taken us to St. Augustine, FL and Orlando, FL in years past.

WWSD 2013, in Orlando, FL, Captain became a World Record Holder for “Weighted Sword Swallowing”, lifting an incredible 84 lbs attached to a sword that he swallowed! What does he have in store for 2014?

See y’all in Gatlinburg!
