This year’s summer seems like it has been hotter than ever in Vancouver, so it really is the perfect time for the annual Vancouver Waterfight! On Saturday, August 11, 2018 people of all ages are invited to Stanley Park to engage in the wettest, wildest fight in the city.

The rules are simple, you can bring any type of water-dispensing devices to soak your “opponents”. Everything from buckets to balloons to water guns and even cupped hands cradling water can be applied in a water fight.

This totally free and totally fun event is one of the biggest and most epic waterfights that you may ever experience. Anyone can join and be a part of the fun and make a few new friends (or enemies).

Organized by Flashmob Vancouver, the annual water fight has been taking place in Stanley Park for the last 12+ years and the popularity continues to grow. Hundreds took part in the water war last year and with the heat wave rocking Vancouver – perhaps hundreds more will participate this year!

When was the last time you threw a water balloon at someone? No matter your answer, it’s been too long! Kids and adults of all ages (especially those young at heart) are invited to get soaked at the water fight which will start at 1:00 pm on Saturday, August 11, 2018.

Never participated in Vancouver’s largest water fight? Here are a few tips on how to have a great time:

Don’t bring weapons other than water pistols – water balloons can be very messy and can be hard to clean up. Stick to something that won’t leave any litter.

Dress for the occasion – chances are you’re going to get wet. Don’t wear you’re best suit (unless it needs a wash), stick to flip flops, bathing suits, and water wings.

Leave the electronics on the sidelines – don’t forget that your cellphone may be in your pocket. That will result in a bad time! Stay on the sidelines if you’re just there to take pictures.

Don’t take things too seriously – this is meant to be a fun activity with friends, it’s not supposed to be a competition. You won’t get bonus points for trying too hard.

Leave no mess behind – the idea behind flashmobs is to come and then go… If you bring water balloons, you are expected to stay afterwards and help clean.

If you want to take part in the action on Saturday, August 11 in Stanley Park, head to Lumberman’s Arch (just past the lighthouse on the way to the Lions Gate Bridge). Parking is located on the road, but the best option is to bike around the seawall to get to the event. See you there!
