Revellers take part in the annual “Naval Battle” of Vallecas in Madrid, Spain July 19, 2015. The slogan for this year's water battle is “Get wet for Alfon, freedom for Alfon”, referring to Alfonso Fernandez Ortega, a Vallecas resident who was sentenced to four years in prison in June. The festival was started spontaneously in 1981 when some neighbours started to throw water at one another due to high temperatures during the Virgen del Carmen Festival.

A member of the United States Naval Academy freshman class crawls through trenches at the wet and sandy station during the annual Sea Trials training exercise at the U.S. Naval Academy on May 13, 2014 in Annapolis, Maryland. For 14 hours, the United States Naval Academy freshman class, also known as Plebes, worked as a team to complete many grueling physical and mental challenges that help prepare them for real-world experiences and reinforce leadership, bonds, trust, and teamwork. Of the challenges, they endured: a two-mile regimental run, ground fights, water tactics, aquatics challenges, and survival skills, amongst many others. (Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)
