Vancouver Water Fight 2014 Stanley Park

It was a wet and wild battle of soaking. Approximately 1,000 water warriors participated at yesterday’s eighth annual Vancouver Water Fight at Stanley Park – the largest water fight in Metro Vancouver.

This year’s flashmob far exceeded the size of those experienced in previous years. Attendees brought their super soakers, water guns, squirt guns, spray bottles, buckets, garbage bags and anything that could contain water as a means of getting others wet.

The weather was perfect for the fun and spontaneous event, with temperatures reaching 25ºC by early-afternoon when the soaking began.

However, some individuals took to social media to complain that they were unarmed bystanders near the water park at Lumberman’s Arch and yet they were still sprayed by participants.

“My four year old was chased by a teenager and repeatedly sprayed in the face at the water park. He was four and unarmed,” wrote Elizabeth Argue on Facebook. “They left my two year old alone but not me.”

Organizers have warned and repeatedly reminded that spraying bystanders and photographers is against the event’s rules.
