Super Soakers are our weapons of choice for a big brawl.
Because our homegrown fight club gets wet and wild.
ON ONE CHOICE DAY each summer, Stanley Park is riddled with gangs.
They lurk around Lumberman’s Arch and dart around totem poles, all while armed to the teeth. Their weapons of choice? Super Soakers. It’s the annual Vancouver Water Fight and the splash zone knows no bounds: thirtysomethings run amok in swim trunks while the water balloons y and teenagers and little ones gleefully trade friendly re. Flash Mob Vancouver technically organizes the waterlogged battle royale, but it’s the 1,300-plus attendees—some in (hopefully waterproof) costumes, some toting homemade water bazookas—who provide the serious whimsy that accompanies this drenched afternoon. Because who but a true Raincouverite would know how to have this much fun while being soaking wet? This year’s water ght takes place August 11; visit facebook.com/vancouverwater ght for details.
