My favorite Fourth of July event in Sitka is the water fight between the Stika Fire Department and Coast Guard. A pony keg is set in the middle of the street and the teams use hoses to move the keg beyond the goal. They also do a lot of spraying the crowds. This year they added foam. Everyone gets wet. For first timers it can be a bit of a shock. I was soaked and loved it.
The following pictures I call the Bill Buckner sequence. I have never seen the keg go through the legs of the lead man before. Most people wondered why I started laughing when I saw that. I am showing my age. That Mets/Sox series was in 1986.
One thought on “July 4th Water Fight!”
Ouch! Bill Buckner!
