All the pretty young things gathered at Beijing’s MasterCard Center in Wukesong Basketball Park last night to splash each other silly and generally just have the time of their lives, it would seem, for the First Hi-Park Youth Carnival that kicked off that day.
Pantless participants were armed with water pistols, basins and buckets to “fight” 100 Mr. Youth—’handsome guys’ specially selected from all over China. According to CRIEnglish, the MasterCard Center will be handing out 1,000 concert tickets to fans who attend the carnival, which lasts until August 2.
“All the classical records of this event will be put in a time capsule and kept in a special area in Wukesong to mark the first year of the ‘Youth’ era.” Whatever.
Readers southward need not be too envious: Shanghai will be hosting its own third annual water war tomorrow, which you can RSVP for at ChinaBrawlers.com.
