GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KAKE) -

It's not every day that Garden City cops pull out their ballistic shields, but they needed the best equipment possible to arm themselves in a snowball fight with a group of fierce opponents. 

Blake Wasinger said in a Facebook post Sunday afternoon that a group of kids had challenged Garden City officers to a snowball fight and were inquiring as to whether police accepted. He shared a picture with five children flexing in front of a towering snow fort. 

Officers showed up and Teresa Wasinger streamed the snowball fight live.

Garden City police said the children were prepared with a fort and thanked them for a good time. Blake thanked police for the amazing battle.
