More snowflakes falling in Montreal may have you down, but there's a silver lining to every cumulus cloud dropping down loads of frozen precipitation, because all that new snow means there's more to fling and fight with, and you'll have your chance this afternoon at McGill University.
Yesterday was just the warm up. Get ready for another next level snowball fight that is sure. Beginning at 5pm on McGill's lower field, you can join 1, 400 people in a snowball battle of epic proportions, where you're sure to shake off some winter/exam frustration, along with a lot of snow that will inevitably hit you.
No official rules have been outlined for this edition of "the great snowball fight of McGill," a tradition that goes all the way back to the dawn of the 20th century, though its safe to assume participants will meet at Roddick Gates then divide into two teams. If you find yourself in a bad situtation during the battle, be sure to raise your hand, to signal you shouldn't be attacked.
Get all the details and join the event for the McGill Snowball Fight here, and as a sample of what's in store for you this afternoon, check out the teaser clip from yesterday's battle below.
