Students at the University of British Columbia are making the most of the snowy weather in Vancouver by having a huge snowball fight on campus.
Vancouver has been hit with the most snow and cold weather it has seen in 10 years. Due to the surprising snowstorm, parts of the city were even shut down. So what better time for BC students to have a huge snowball fight across campus?

It's not even the first time that this massive campus-wide snowball fight has taken place at UBC! The UBC Party Calendar has hosted their "Campus Wide Snowball Fight" for two years already, and 2019 marks the third year for this annual event.
