Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums will again be home to a majority of the world’s sword swallowers as they demonstrate their death-defying skills to mark World Sword Swallower's Day on Saturday, February 25. 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. The event also recognizes the contributions that sword swallowers have made to medicine and science. There are only a few dozen people in the world able (and willing) to swallow swords. In Williamsburg, Cyrus “Cydeshow Cy” Pynn will demonstrate his sword swallowing skills as well as other death-defying sideshow feats. The show will start at 2:00 pm with the Big Swallow finale at 2:25 pm. The show is FREE and will take place at Ripley’s Williamsburg Odditorium.
