Mega Force - Friday, January 11, 2019 - 7:00 p.m. -- Mooringsport Baptist Church Fellowship Hall
Mega Force brings its message to communities worldwide alongside entertaining strongman presentations. Presenters complete feats of strength such as breaking bricks and police handcuffs, ripping license plates and phone books, and rolling frying pans into tight curls.
Carrier, a Guinness World Record holder for breaking 34 baseball bats in under a minute, will show off his skills during an hourlong presentation Sunday evening. The program is free to attend and open to the public.
Mega Force was begun in 2001, inspired by ESPN’s “World’s Strongest Man.” Carrier remembers observing the crowds these competitions would draw, and that fueled the Mega Force dream. He said, “I thought, ‘Well, what’s a way that I can replicate that in a way that I can steer to giving back to the community?” He began practicing the feats of strength featured on the program and discovered that performing them was an easy way to draw a crowd.
Over the years, Carrier has been featured on the television shows “America’s Got Talent,” “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” “Walker Texas Ranger” and “Steve Harvey’s Big Show.”
