Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park Snowball Fight Photos

Thanks to all the readers who sent in photos of this under-reported battle. I saw lots of news about the Dupont fight (a comparison photo after the jump) but heard very little of the Meridian Hill one. I stopped by Meridian Hill and in addition to this great battle there was also snow football, sledding and a general good time.



More pics including one from Dupont after the jump. Also a video of sledding and the Meridian Hill battle (thanks to Abigail) Did anyone by chance hit both fights?





And below is a shot from Dupont Circle that may look more crowded because the space was smaller but both look like an awesome time was had:


  • I can’t think straight right now, but I think I agree!

    • You got snowcoholism? The urge to drink loads whenever it snows?
      Me too.

    i was at meridian hill and it was super fun. great snowball fight without a gun in sight. also went innertubing down the steps and i think there was snowboarding down the steps too. out of nowhere a keg appeared, which i brought together people from both sides of the snowball fight!

    Thanks for the YouTube footage and the report. If only I lived a little further south :D

    There have been \drama-free\ snowball battles at Meridian Hill/Macolm X since the 70s and ’80s.

    It’s nice to see that blizzards can still bring this community together for a good time :)

    I was told a young woman smacked her head sledding (probably down those steps) and there was a lot of blood. That would explain the ambulance I saw making its way up a very slippery 15th street.
