This Sunday hundreds of people will make a splash at Sydney’s Annual Epic Water Fight in Victoria Park, Broadway.
Water fight organiser, Justin Yem, said the event is aimed at getting people away from behind their computers and tv’s to get some good old fashioned fun in the sun.
“Basically it is a fun and free event for people and families of all ages during summer and is aimed at giving people something fun to do outdoors after all the expenses of the holiday season,” he said. This year’s event will be the third Sydney installment but is the fourth Australia wide.
“I was completely taken back at how popular they were with 400 plus people at both Sydney events and more than 300 at the Adelaide one,” Mr Yem said.
Inspired by the popular video game Halo, the December 18 water fight will split the group down the middle into red and blue teams, with the leaders of both sides already recruiting troops.
“I love the people that come in costumes. We need the generals of each army to stand out,” Mr Yem said.
Last year’s waterfight was a ferocious battle between the likes of a storm trooper, a Resident Evil’s Umbrella Corp army officer and a horde of ninjas.
“I’m ecstatic to see the response and how much fun people had at Australia’s Epic Water Fight events around the country and really hope that it continues,” Mr Yem said.
