TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Several hundred people showed up at Wright Park in Tacoma on Saturday, after a local resident Stacy Stevens put up a post on Facebook the day before saying there would be a huge public snowball fight.

A large storm system had dumped inches (centimetres) of snow on Tacoma and the surrounding area, an unusual accumulation for this city located south of Seattle.

The post was shared by other people on social media, and the word spread quickly, with more than 3,000 people registering their interest in the event.

In an area marked by tall trees near the park's fountain, people of all ages and from different areas of the city converged loosely into two sides and began making – and throwing snowballs.

People used sleds and even upturned picnic tables as shields, and snowballs rained down for nearly two hours.
