Remember the water gun battle in Boston we told you about a couple of weeks ago? It happened this Saturday and Nick Carlisle wrote in with a report:
On Saturday, we (Banditos Misteriosos) hosted a Revolutionary War re-enactment…with water guns and bubbles. We had probably about 300 people, separated into two teams: the “Redcoats” and the “Colonists.”
We marched from two different locations and met up to douse each other in water on the Charles River Esplanade. People of all ages took part.
I put a quick video together (as I’m sure you can surmise, filming in the midst of hundreds of people with water guns can be risky, but I couldn’t resist).
The bubbles were meant to be a “peacetime cease-fire” (of course it didn’t work, the “troops” re-engaged and resumed battle within a couple of minutes — word has it that many people dipped their water guns into the Charles River to re-load during this time.)
