Yes, there’s a dodgeball tourney on WashAve

This story originally appeared on RealTime/STL.

It’s true: People are playing dodgeball on Washington Avenue between 13th and 14th streets. It’s a fundraiser for the Lupus Foundation.

Technically, it’s not, but the street is blocked off, with fencing to keep spectators out of harm’s way.

Watch out: Blues defenseman Ian Cole may be in the area yelling quotes from an appropriately named movie.

Washington Avenue also will be closed over the weekend for Cinco de Mayo festivities.
