It’s summer time, it’s hot outside and what better way to cool off than taking part in Vancouver’s largest water fight!
The annual event draws hundreds of participants ready to get wet. Make sure you follow the code of conduct, listed below.
Feel free to pass this on via Twitter and Facebook. For Twitter, copy and paste the following tweet:
Come to #Vancouver’s Largest Water Fight at Stanley Park on Aug 10 Everyone’s invited. http://ow.ly/mDglh Spread The Word!
Vancouver Water Fight 2013 Code of Conduct:
This is a water fight – don’t bring any other weapons apart from water pistols. WATER BOMBS ARE MESSY SO CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF – littering is a crime and we love our planet.
We are not going to be your parents, nor are we going to be the police, if you see someone doing something stupid, tell them to stop. If you’re doing something stupid – don’t, you’re going to ruin it and this has the potential to be a massive laugh.
Dress for the occasion, you’re going to get WET! Shorts, bikinis, flippers, floaty arm bands, whatever.
Don’t terrorize the public – if they want to get involved, let them. THIS IS AN OPEN INVITATION.
Don’t bring camera’s. They’re going to get wet and DON’T come complaining when they don’t work. There will be plenty of other people involved devoted to taking pictures.
This is a LAUGH, don’t take it too seriously, and don’t beat each other up over it (close up shooting and all that).
Don’t leave any mess behind! We come and then go (the place looks the same as it did when we came, that includes plastic bottles e.t.c)
DON’T GET THE ARMED POLICE DEPLOYED BY BRINGING WATER PISTOLS THAT LOOK LIKE REAL GUNS!
Please try not to use more water than you have to – preserve your supplies. . . REMEMBER there could be a water ban this summer.
If anyone asks who organized it – we all happened to be in the same place at the same time. Amazing, isn’t it?
No one get naked in the fountain – you could be arrested.
No dyed water – it stains clothes AND it could stain the pavement. Not good, it’s vandalism.
SPREAD THE WORD!
OK, get naked, but I can’t promise there will be a fountain.
WHAT: Sixth Annual Vancouver Waterfight
WHEN: 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 10 (if it’s poor weather, the event will be rescheduled)
