Massive Snowball Fight Expected in DCFebruary 10, 2010 - 11:45 AM | by: Kimberly Schwandt
It’s rematch time. In a facebook message to followers, “The Official DC Snowball Fight Crew” (or The ODCSF Crew for short) is encouraging DC to take part in “The action, the fun, the thrill of the fight!”
The group is even peddling t-shirts, magnets, mugs and other souvenirs to mark the occasion.
At 2 p.m. Wednesday DC residents are expected to congregate to the area’s popular Dupont Circle for another massive snowball fight.
Just last Saturday a huge crowd took part in a snowball fight after DC’s most recent snow dump. Nearly 2,000 reportedly attended that one.
Organizers are calling today’s conditions “IDEAL” for a good “fight.”
Participants also won’t just be throwing some frozen fast balls, it might just look more like a big party or parade. They’re encouraged to bring flags, banners, shields, ammo trays, drums, and furry costumes.
The situation is ripe for a good turnout today with the federal government closed due to the weather and many businesses shut down, there will be plenty of idle and cabin-fevered residents looking for something do.
The snowball fights have been mostly organized through social networking.
Organizers are noting they want to keep the event active, but not too rowdy, ” let’s keep the fight CLEAN and SAFE for all involved!”
