I went to a snowball fight today.
CJFM (Virgin Radio) had this promotion where they’d bring in snow and have people throw snowballs at each other in the middle of a July heat wave.
The station has video of the event, as does Canadian Press. I took some pictures which I’ve posted below.
The event – just across the street from Place Jacques Cartier in the Old Port – lasted about 15 minutes before the Virgin folks quietly departed into their air-conditioned SUVs, the pile of snow having turned to less appetizing dirty slush.
Still, a fun way to spend 10 minutes in the middle of a heat wave.
Bags of ice are brought in
Emptying the bags of snow (or, more accurately, crushed ice)
Yes, that's Mark Bergman on the right - in desperate need of a belt.
Cousin Vinny enjoys the fun
Mark Bergman is interviewed, asked if this event is just an excuse for him to wear his shades
I understand it's in Bergman's contract to have girls dancing around him wherever he goes
Ten minutes later, the snow has turned mostly to slush
