I had heard about this event through Facebook, where it actually said that over 10,000 people would attend. I would have loved to go, because it seems like they had a blast. However, I couldn't make it. Nevertheless, it's too cool to miss it in my blog!
It was a great day to do it, because the weather was amazing. The event took place in the middle of Central Park, at the Great Lawn. When I read about it I thought it would be a lot of fun. The only rules were:
- Respect given to everyone
- Don’t spray non-warriors or photographers
- Don’t spray directly into players’ eyes
- Children under 16 years of age should be accompanied by an adult
- NO REPLICA WATER GUNS (that resemble real firearms)
People only had to worry about bringing the right weapons: water guns, water blasters or balloons. Here you can check out a video about the event:
Apparently, there is going to be a second part in August. I will keep an eye on this event because I have to attend before I leave the city!
I couldn't really understand who started all this. It seems like the idea came from "Free New York City Concerts" (Link: The #1 Facebook page for your Free Concerts in the City and the best contests to win FREE Tickets to shows!) I had never heard of that page before, but now with this event I started checking it out and it's actually great! They post about free concerts, which sounded kind of impossible to me before!
As you can see, there's a lot of fun in the city without spending a single dollar. This city is full of young people with limited budgets but unlimited creativity when it comes to enjoying life.
I hope you guys are having a great weekend! Thanks for reading and see you soon!
