As heavy snowfall blanketed much of Washington DC, hundreds battled it out in a massive snowball fight on Tuesday evening. The event - organised by the aptly-named Washington DC Snowball Fight Assocation - took place at the city's Dupont Circle under a thick blizzard of snow. Thousands stayed away from schools and offices across the US capital after heavy snow left much of the city paralysed. But of course, that didn't stop a few hundred revellers making something out of the winter weather. The videos below were taken at the event and later uploaded onto social networking websites.
