HOAGIES 3rd Annual Summer Water Gun & Water Balloon Fight! @ Astoria Park

  • This location is shown only to members

This water gun and water balloon fight has been a tradition with the HOAGIES for the past 2 years... so let's continue it! It's the type of fun event that we're known for and its something that everyone can come out to. So the more, the merrier! Despite all the crazy stuff I do, I'm actually a big dork and love doing random stuff like this all the time. :P

Everyone likes waterfights unless your that lame kid who always gets ganged up on. Well, anyway, its the middle of summer, and its freaking hot outside... Your sweating in your office, wishing you could be at the beach, just counting the hours till you get out of work.. Relief is here, just grab your water gun and bunch of water balloons and get outside!

Even if you were that lame kid in high school... (everybody was at some point..) Who cares and just have fun?!? Invite all your friends, have them invite all theirs, get as many people to come as possible.. Bring buckets, water guns, water balloons, anything! I will be more prepared this time around and will bring a huge cooler filled with water balloons and I hope everyone else does the same... hehe

Bring your waterguns, water balloons, hope for a scorching hot day and let's make this happen!

We'll meet in Astoria Park at the intersection of 19th St and 23rd Ave on top of the park lawn. Afterwards, we'll get some drinks or something to eat in the neighborhood. Bring a change of clothes, you will get soaked...

Location:

  • Astoria Park: Intersection of 19th St and 23rd Ave. We'll be at the top of park lawn. I'll stick a large tent pole in the ground with a bandana or HOAGIES sign attached to it.
