By the time I went to Central Park on Saturday it was already quite hot outside. I found myself doing more wandering than actual running. From the bridle path I noticed a lot of noise and movement around the Great Lawn. I thought there was a concert or something like that, but when I asked a group of people, they said there’s a water gun fight. Really? I had to go see.
The Great Lawn and all the nearby paths and surrounding areas were filling with people, most of all whom were holding super-sized super-soaker water guns. It was rather hysterical – the lines for the water fountains went on for blocks, and there were frequent out-breaks of water gun fights. Much more than squirts, mainly blasts.
I didn’t know about this event, but apparently many others did. In fact, according to this NBC article, Central Park refused to issue a permit when more than 64,000 people RSVP’ed to this Facebook invite for Waterfight NYC 2015 #StayWet.
Well, permit or no permit, the fight went on. Here are some photos – each one is better than the next! And, yes, I did get soaked in more than one crossfire. It was hilarious.
