A massive water gun fight done right (VIDEO)

In Thailand, the new year is celebrated with a three-day, wet and wild festival known as Songkran. This year, the party was held April 13-15, but in some areas, the celebration goes on for days longer, and those in attendance have the biggest water gun fight in the world.

Apparently the celebration historically was kicked off when people went to the temple and poured water on one another’s hands as a symbol of blessing and over Buddha statues to symbolize cleansing and purification to start the new year. But over the years, the pouring of water has turned to throwing and spraying water… by any means necessary.
