Snowball fight moved to Meridian Hill Park

WASHINGTON — Want to play in the snow? An organized snowball fight is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Meridian Hill Park.

The event originally had been set for Dupont Circle Park, but the National Park Service plowed the park area, according to the D.C. Snowball Fight Association.

The association organized the event, and there are ground rules:

  • We’ll respect any requests of the Metropolitan Police Department and the U.S. National Park Police

  • We hope you won’t target members of the media (too hard) or damage anyone’s camera

  • In the interests of safety, we urge everyone to play fair, NOT THROW ICE, and wear any protective gear that you think you need

  • Pelting moving vehicles could cause accidents, so we say: please don’t go there

  • And we also want to state the obvious: anyone who behaves recklessly is responsible for the consequences.
