UPDATE: The snowball fight originally scheduled for Tuesday has been rescheduled to Wednesday at noon due to UBC’s decision to cancel most classes throughout the day.
There’s no better way to celebrate the snow than with a giant snowball fight and that is exactly what’s going down at UBC’s Vancouver campus Wednesday.

“Whenever it snows in Vancouver we always try to organize the snowball fight. The last time we organized the event in 2017, thousands of students and staff showed up and news outlets from around the world covered the fight,” said UBC Party Calendar’s Andria Coulbourn, in a release.
The 2017 event was an epic success with well over 3,000 people in attendance.
