It’s hard to outdo the Great Dupont Snowball Fight of 2010, but let’s give it a shot.  This Sunday at 2 PM, Dupont Circle will be the site of a Citywide Water Balloon War. It’s the first event of its kind in the District, so grab some balloons (they’ll have some, but you’ll want to bring your own for maximum soakage) and head over to the circle for the snowball fight’s warmer, sunnier brother.  And a word to those families planning a leisurely Sunday afternoon in Dupont Circle?  Prepare to get wet.

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!

  1. Ahhh the joys of DC Flash Mobs. Good thing nothing could possibly go wrong with a ton of folks hurling water balloons at each other :) I’m sure EMTs are pretty bored this time of year – It’s really a favor to them!
