KENT, Ohio — Hundreds of people at Kent State University in northeast Ohio had some childhood fun with an old-fashioned snowball fight late Monday night.

Around 300 to 500 people gathered near Taylor Hall for a snowball fight organized in a GroupMe chat.

Video footage from KentWired, a student-run news website, said a large group formed between 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m., with activities wrapping up around 11:20 p.m. once police arrived.

The gathering took place amid Monday evening's snowstorm, which dropped snow and ice from Texas to New England.
