Cooling Off on a Hot Day

The city of Eagle, Idaho, hosts a yearly event called “Family Fun Days,” the highlight of which, for many, is the Rocky Mountain Oyster feed (Google Rocky Mountain Oysters. You won’t be disappointed). For others, the highlight is the parade, during which firefighters and people on floats regularly douse parade-watchers on the side of the road with cold water. Over the years, the people have learned to fight back, with ever-more-powerful water guns, and by packing in buckets and bins full of water for reloading. A very fun event, and these are a very few of my favorite image from this year’s event.
