WWFM – World Wide Flash Mobs – A fun and friendly way to promote geocaching around the world.
Thousands of geocachers at dozens of coordinated events spanning the globe, gathering at the same time.
Sonny and Sandy of the PodCacher podcast came up with the WWFM idea in 2007 after attending a mega-event. It was meant to be a fun “opposite” of a mega-event: all the cool aspects of a geocaching event, crammed into 15 minutes of excitement. An added dimension is represented by the letters "WW" - World Wide - these events occur across the planet on the same day at (mostly) the same time! These caching events are intended to bring geocachers together in a creative way, as well as introduce others (newbies) to the hobby.

For the GCWWFM XVIII we are challenging everyone to come and take a big swig of the stanky Lithia water! For this event, we'll be gathering around the Enders Memorial Gazebo near the Butler Bandshell, filling a small cup with that wonderfully smelling water, sharing a delightful toast, and then swigging back on that delicious drink! It'll be delighfully disgusting and a shocking sight for those in the park :)
WHO: Anyone and Everyone!
WHAT: Geocaching World Wide Flash Mob 2021 Celebration
WHEN: Saturday, September 18th 10:00 - 10:30 am
WHERE: Enders Memorial Shelter (roughly 100 feet or so from the Butler Bandshell)
WHY: For fun of course!
While there is NOT a souvenir associated with the event this year, we still wanted to get out and be silly with everyone. We will be monitoring all COVID updates and encourage everyone to wear a mask and social distance as much as possible at the event. We want everyone to stay safe and have fun!
