WATER FIGHT/FISTICUFFS AT END
The Trump Truck may have not had the biggest water fight at the paradeÂ –Â the Fraternal Order of the Eagles had an epic two-sided water battle with the same group of spectators, which was so well executed by both sides you would think it was pre-arranged in the name of good clean fun.
What the Trump Truck supporter did not mention in hisÂ letter was the heated exchange that occurred at the very end of the parade between it and the people on the Eagles float. Without getting into who started what (not 100% sure on that), it escalated to punches thrown and many nearby adults standing around doing nothing.
Because we walked the last bit of the parade with the Highline Bears, we listened to non-stop boos aimed at the Trump Truck ahead of us, and witnessed the epic water battle with the Eagles behind us. We also got to witness the Bears jump in and diffuse the end-of-route fight without taking sides.
Here’s video of the water fight with the Eagles:
