The authorities supported the idea, but asked the participants to be careful

Resident of Tacoma in Washington State Stacy Stevens wrote on Facebook about the “big snow battle” that was proposed to be arranged in the park on Saturday, February 9th. The girl invited to participate all those who live nearby.

Post Stevens quickly spread through the social network, thanks to which more than three thousand people showed interest in the snow battle. As a result, according to local media, “hundreds” of people of different ages who live in different parts of Tacoma came to the park.

The event was supported by local authorities. State Governor Jay Insley only asked residents to be careful.

“It’s a perfect morning to pack up and play in the snow, but if possible, stay away from the roads. If you need to go somewhere by car, [know] that in your account @wsdot_traffic regularly share new information about the situation on the roads. Take care of yourself”

The assembled locals divided into two teams, and during the game they went sledding and used picnic tables as shields. The snowball battle lasted about two hours.
