Every year, the Washington DC Snowball Fight Association (yes, this really exists) gets together a random assortment of people in Dupont Circle, and for about an hour, we get to pretend we’re kids all over again.
“We’re Not Gonna Take It” blared out of loud speakers as everyone bum-rushed the people who were brave enough to post themselves next to the fountain at the center of the park. A little leprechaun in a trench coat and a penguin in sunglasses were both hurling snowballs at people this year, and I swear someone dressed as the Grinch beamed a huge hunk of ice at me. The group even attacked a Fox News reporter with a trash can full of snow and the poor guy went tumbling down to the ground. It was all in good fun though!
