You may want to bring clothes specifically for the food fight that you may never wear again...There is a public bathroom in the playground area!

Eat the food if you want or give it back to the world. Q. What kind of food should I bring for the Food Fight? A. Stuff that is soft and fun and safe and that will dissolve easily. Please no pasta, raw meat, raw eggs, Great examples include: warm instant mashed potatoes, icy jello, lots of carbonated seltzer water, chocolate sauce, lots of whipped cream, custard, pudding, ...
