  • Fruit Wars
    While smartphone apps simulate the thrill of battling produce, Fruit Warriors gives participants a taste of real, produce-fueled combat. Inside a walled-off arena, warriors garbed in eclectic costumes and safety goggles seek out and pelt their rivals with expired fruit, creating a large-scale food fight not seen since the Boston Tea Party. In a post-fight party, rivals put aside their arena battles to dance to the sounds of performing bands and DJs, or laugh at comedians. While playing in food all day may make one hungry, Fruit Warriors comes prepared to settle growling stomachs with a number of food trucks and brews inside the Alcohol Palace.
