Today's battle was a success! Over 450 soldiers rushed the battlefield to take part in the Second Revolutionary Water Gun Battle.  Full of water balloons, umbrellas ans a surprise French army, it was a skirmish that would have our forefathers proud. We hope you had all had fun.

Revolutionary Water Gun Battle 2009

Date: August 22nd 1:30PM
Location: The Esplanade

The summer is heating up, thus, it is with pride, after many requests, that Banditos Misteriosos announces our Second Annual Revolutionary Water Gun Fight.

Last year over 375 warriors rushed into battle, complete with marching armies, drums, fifes and bubble blowing robots. And this year, we plan on holding another battle. But this time, even larger.

For all the highlighted images from last year's battle click below:

>> Last Year's Battle <<

Consider this event the combination of a good old fashioned water gun fight and the revolutionary battle of our forefathers.  

Staying true to Boston's historical roots, this water gun fight shall focus on two armies, marching and meeting each other for a battle in a specific location.


Saturday, August 22nd - 1:30PM

TBA in registration email.

Army Assignment:
Participants will be asked to register for event before August 21st, at 6:00PM

If you are signing up multiple people, we ask you do it one at a time. If it is a large group, if you could place their names and email addresses in a spreadsheet and email it to us, we'll take care of it!

The night before the event, emails will be sent out with army assignment and meet up location.

- 1 UNLOADED water gun of your choice.
- At least 3 FILLED two-liter bottles (bring more if you desire!)
- 2 (and only 2) filled water balloons
- 1 back-pack to hold water bottles.
- 1 either red or blue shirt (depending on army assignment).
- Any other revolutionary paraphernalia you don't mind getting wet (hats, flutes, etc)
- As always, your fighting vigor and a bandana!

Please be aware of electronics during this event. If you see someone with a camera or camcorder, please shy away from getting them wet. Also, we like public property. Lets be nice to it.

If you have any marching drum/flute experience or if you have in your own possession, a revolutionary soldier outfit, please do e-mail us as we would love to talk to you! - Don't worry, instruments and professional outfits will not get wet-

Besides that, its pretty straight forward.

Everything will make sense when you receive your enlistment email on the 21st.

It's hot out, so lets have a good old fashioned water gun fight! Spread the word, call your Sons and Daughters of Liberty to arms! Let's do Sam Adams and Lord Cornwallis proud!
