Water Fight NYC 2016
After several weeks of 80 – 90 degree weather, it’s safe to say that people are ready for a major cool down. Thankfully the annual NYC water fight is just around the corner. Join thousands of New Yorkers on the Great Lawn in Central Park this July 30th at 2pm. Oh, and when we say thousands – we mean it. facebook currently shows 4k confirmed, 11k interested and 10k invited people total. This is shaping up to be a crazy water fight!
Of course with that many people there are some rules you’ll have to abide by including:
- Absolutely NO WATER BALLOONS
- Water guns only!
- NO Replica Water Guns
- Ages 16 and up (parental guidance is advised for anyone under)
- Clean up after yourself
- Respect everyone
- Don’t spray water on unwilling participants
- Don’t spray people with cameras
- Don’t Spray people directly in their eyes
- Stay away from baseball fields
- Make Friends =)
Now that we’ve talked about the rules let’s move onto gear! The NYC Water Fight facebook page recommends that people wear sneakers, goggles and a backpack to store extra water bottles (there will be additional water supply). If you want to go the extra mile bring trash bags to clean up after. We need to keep the park clean if we want to continue to have water fights there.
