Where there’s snow, there’s bound to be snowball fights. It’s only human nature.
On February 17th, following one of many massive snowstorms that have struck the eastern coast of the United States so far this winter, residents of Washington, D.C., took part in a snowball fight of epic proportions in the city’s Meridian Hill Park.
Tens of thousands of workers in the Mid-Atlantic region were asked to stay home from work on Feb. 17 as a result of the snowstorm, which blanketed the District in five inches of snow and hit the surrounding suburbs with upwards of eight inches.
The fight was organized by the Washington DC Snowball Fight Association — it’s a real thing, trust us. Check out some of the snowiest highlights from the brawl in the video above.
