Saskatoon to host North America’s First Organized Snowball Fight – January 28 & 29, 2011.
The simple pleasure of throwing a perfectly formed snowball at someone has been turned into a game with standardized rules and field definitions. Snowball Fighting, or Yukigassen (Japanese for Snowbattle) (you-key-goss-en), originated in 1988. Since then it has snowballed and has been taken up by European countries and is expanding to North America, with Saskatoon to be the first official Yukigassen event host in 2011.
