Ripley's Believe It Or Not! honors sword swallowers
Ripley's Believe It or Not! and the Sword Swallowers Association will celebrate the sixth annual World Sword Swallowers Day on Saturday. Ripley's locations around the world will feature sword swallowers. "We established World Sword Swallower's Day to honor this ancient art, and recognize the few people in the world who can do this. We also raise awareness of the contributions sword swallowers have made to the fields of medicine and science in raising money for esophageal cancer research," said Dan Meyer, a sword swallower.
