Get out your white Smurf hat, pants, shoes, and blue body paint to celebrate Global Smurfs Day tomorrow.
The Smurfs were created way back in 1958 by someone named Peyo. He started by making comic books and later the Smurfs ended up on both the big and small screen. In anticipation of the July 29 release of 'Smurfs 3D,' Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation decided to have a Global Smurfs Day celebration around the world.
A few of the cities participating in Global Smurfs Day are Brussels, Belgium (where Peyo is from); Athens, Greece; Scheveningen, Holland; Dublin, Ireland; Mexico City, Mexico; Panama City, Panama; Warsaw, Poland; Moscow, Russia; Johannesburg, South Africa; New York City; and London.
People in these cities can enjoy fun Smurf-related activities and they are encouraged to come to the events in Smurf costume in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Records® title for Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Smurfs within a 24-hour period in Multiple Venues! Check out the Global Smurfs Day website for the 411.
We are celebrating the day by bringing you an exclusive clip from 'Smurfs 3D.' Check it out below.
