WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Hundreds of students, teachers and government workers took advantage of a snow day in Washington, D.C., by holding a massive snowball fight.
The Washington DC Snowball Fight Association, which organizes events on social media, held a massive snowball fight at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Meridian Hill Park.
The participants included college students, teachers, federal staffers and one man dressed as Captain America.
The event celebrated a snow day for area schools and non-emergency workers with the federal Office of Personnel Management.
The snowball fight had originally been planned for Dupont Circle, where a similar massive snow-brawl took place in 2010, but was moved to Meridian Hill Park after the National Park Service plowed the sidewalks at Dupont.
