Water disorder

I was amused to see this headline on the local Midlands BBC news feed yesterday, about a giant “water fight” that seems to have got out of hand.

Not only does this feature Birmingham, but it happened in Cannon Hill park, by the Midland Arts Centre, not a hundred yards from the location I was writing about in my blog post a few days ago. Perhaps Todd and Cynthia went back to settle old scores?!

I’m intrigued to know what a water fight is, anyway. The article is remarkably unhelpful, but I’m picturing those big plastic squirty water pistols, or perhaps even paper/plastic “water bombs” filled in the boating lake. Am I being hopelessly naïve? Anyone got any better ideas?

    I’m not sure what they mean by a ‘water fight,’ either. If it’s anything like the water fights I know about, it involves the use of water guns and even buckets, and people do get thoroughly soaked. Could that have led to a brawl? Hmm….not sure
