Submitted by the Event Organizer
Ripley’s Believe It or Not San Francisco Odditorium celebrates the 10th annual World Sword Swallower’s Day.
This will be the tenth year that Ripley’s has hosted the event, which celebrates the 4,000 year old art and honors the few people in the world who risk their lives every time they swallow a sword.
Performances start around 1:45 pm with the official “Big Swallow” taking place at 2:25 pm to coincide with the day, February 25, 2017.
San Francisco’s own performers are putting on a free show outside of the SF Odditorium. Matthew Bouvier – aka Matt Molotov – will lead a group of sword swallowers, all showing off their death-defying skills. Matt swallows swords as long as 28 inches.
