The DSF World Records Venture aims at involving people of all nationalities in Dubai to create an annual event of record breaking. Adjudicators will be present from 3pm to 5pm to verify whether new records have been created.

The Largest Pillow Fight, which will involve a massive 4,500 participants, is an exciting record-breaking effort being held today at Al Safa Park. The event is organised by DSF along with Foresight, a non-profit organisation that helps people with eye disorder Retinitis Pigmentosa.

The current record for the most participants in a pillow fight stands at 3,648. Participants can buy a pillow for Dh25 and the proceeds from the event will go to Foresight.

The pillow fight has to go on for at least a minute to get into the record books and the pillows have been donated by Home Centre.

Sponsored by Rani, Mondial FPI, EMDI and Khaleej Times, the fun event invites people to witness the creation of yet another world record. Those who wish to take part in the pillow fight can call Ahlan Dubai on 600545555.

The last record to be attempted on the day will be the display of the ‘Largest Wallet’, made of genuine cow grain leather with a lining of goat leather. With one currency note pocket, one coin pocket, and three card slots, the wallet will be 240 centimetres long and 11 metres wide. Paris Gallery has undertaken the task of creating the largest wallet.
