Ah the waterfight, a perennial childhood favorite. Every year we’d fill up our water guns and run around soaking a sibling or maybe the kid from across the street. It was fun but it never seemed to compare to the giant, all-out water wars you saw on Nickelodeon. Now, all these years later, your childhood fantasy is about to come true. On July 30th from 2 to 5pm, New Yorkers will swarm Central Park’s Great Lawn sporting water guns, super soakers, buckets full of water, and spray bottles (but not water balloons – they’re banned because of the mess they leave) with one mission: getting everyone really wet.
If you’d like to join in the fun, check out the Official Event Page on Facebook. You’ll find rules, recommendations about what to bring, and event merchandise.
