DULUTH, MN -- A way to enjoy a warm winter Sunday... it was the City-Wide Snowball Fight at Leif Erickson Park in Duluth.

The giant snowball fight took place among the snow-fort city at the park.

Thanks to the warmer weather, the snow was wet and packable - perfect for snowballs.

The only rule - if you hurt anyone with a snowball - you're doing it wrong.

For those who couldn't make it, event organizers encouraged that wherever you were in Duluth on Sunday, you threw a snowball in solidarity.

"I really don't know how many people total have thrown a snowball at a friend or neighbor today but we were planning it to be city wide," said organizer Jim Richardson. "Hopefully next year will be even bigger and continue to grow after that. We might even have another one or two before winter's over."

Players at Leif Erikson Park were able to form teams or go solo.

They built forts, brought shields, banners, slingshots, and just made the most of the biggest snowball fight in the city.
