Texas summers are brutal. Some days you break a sweat within minutes of stepping outside. Cooling off in the AC is nice, but cooling off with an awesome water gun fight is even better. The battle is being organized by Dallas Flash Mob. Keep a few ground rules in mind: No water balloons; don’t bring a water gun that looks like a real gun; dress to get drenched.
