Colorado town overturns ban on snowball fights thanks to 9-year-old boy

9-Year-Old Leads The Charge In Changing ‘Illegal Snowballs’ Law

For almost 100 years, the winter pastime has been illegal in the northern Colorado town, but thanks to Best's efforts, that law is history.

"Today's kids need reasons to play outside", Best said, according to member station Colorado Public Radio.

'I think it's an outdated law, ' Dane said.

Although he faced hard questions from the board-including: "Can we amend this ordinance to say that if you're over 60, no one can throw a snowball at you?"-officials were impressed with the boy's performance and agreed to repeal the ban".

Town officials said the ban was part of a much larger ordinance that prohibited people from throwing objects classified as missiles, which included snowballs and stones, the news agency reports.
