Watch the Beauty and Chaos of the World's Largest Snowball Fight

This winter, more than 8200 of Canada’s greatest warriors gathered in Victoria Park in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada for the world’s largest snowball fight. The frozen battle was an attempt to break the Guinness World Record, and though Guinness hasn’t announced the official record yet, the snowball fight was undeniably epic. 

Filmmakers Preston Kanak and Dylan Hryciuk were on the scene to capture highlights from the event. Their short film, "World's Largest Snowball Fight," unfolds in beautiful slow motion, capturing the joy and chaos of the fight. The film starts with the final moments of calm before the battle, and then explodes into action as the air fills with snow. It’s a lovely tribute to what must have been an immensely fun day in the snow for the people of Saskatoon. Check it out above.
