Las Vegas Lights invite fans to get into water balloon fight

The Las Vegas Lights want to stage the world’s largest water balloon fight at a soccer match.

Fans will be able to take the field at halftime of Friday’s match against San Diego Loyal SC. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. at Cashman Field.

Thousands of water balloons will be handed out to those who participate, and anyone younger than 10 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The water balloon fight will last at least two minutes.

The Lights also put together a water balloon fight two years ago at halftime of the match against the Portland Timbers 2.
