PUMPKIN SMASHING - A RECORD ATTEMPT!!!
WE EXPERIENCED A GUINNESS WORLD RECORD IN THE MAKING...
WHAT: For the first time in Oktoberfest NW history, Ron Sarchian
attempted to smash the most pumpkins in ONE MINUTE!!!
UPDATE! WORLD RECORD RON SMASHED 54 PUMPKINS, UNOFFICIALLY MAKING HIM THE NEW WORLD RECORD HOLDER!
WHY: Because, Ron 'Record Man' Sarchian breaks world records - 9 in fact, and, it's 'smashing' good entertainment, of course!
Ron broke his very first Guinness World Record, the “Punchbag Marathon” and punched a 100 lb. heavy bag for 36 hrs. & 3 min. from June 15th-17th, 2004.
On September 5th, 2017, Ron was invited to appear on The “Today Show” where he proceeded to break the “Most Watermelons Smashed with a Karate Chop in One Minute” Live at Rockefeller Center in front of over 5 million TV viewers. Breaking Guinness World Records is Ron’s way of honoring his parents. Ron has held 7 Guinness World Records, and plans on continuing to break more World Records, including the upcoming 'Pumpkin Smashing' at Oktoberfest NW! Prost to the Pumpkin!
