    Despite the frigid and hazardous conditions that shut down federal offices, snowballers in Washington, D.C., geared up today for the first organized snowball fight of the season.



    Massive Snowball Fight in Nation's Capitol


    The Washington DC Snowball Fight Association (yes, that’s a thing) created an event on its Facebook page late Monday night inviting the district’s snowballers to a “benevolent snowball battle” at Meridian Hill Park for the first time since last March.

    Hundreds of D.C. residents showed up at 11 a.m. this morning, taking advantage of the snow that has blanketed the nation’s capital.

    To top it off, there’s even a costume contest for the “craziest looking snowball fighter,” where the winner gets a $75 gift card from James Hoban's Irish Restaurant & Bar.

    Here’s a look at the best moments from the D.C. snowball fight:

    If it's DC, the only snowballs are heroin ones.

    The police quickly returned fire and 87 people were killed in response. One officer was placed on restricted duty for unzipping his pants during the melee.
