The second-annual Color War held by the Sixth Point drew 24 participants to Brook Run Park in Dunwoody on Sunday, June 7, for a three-team competition: yellow, representing the 1970s; blue, 1980s; and red, 1990s. Each team was judged on its mascot; poster; and parody song (“Winnin’ the Game” to the tune of “Stayin’ Alive” for the 1970s, “We’ve Got You Beat” to the tune of “We’ve Got the Beat” for the 1980s and “Livin’ La Vida Roja” to the tune of “Livin’ La Vida Loca” for the 1990s). They also competed in a potato sack race, a water balloon toss, a dizzy bat relay, a three-legged race, a tug of war and penny wars. Judges awarded points at their discretion for team spirit, color- or decade-themed snacks, and pretty much anything else they wanted. The red team claimed the victory for the 1990s.
