2. Water gun: The large water gun was actually invented by a black man. And it’s appropriate because they are used in abundance during one of the most popular events during the TJFV. A concept conceived by J. Anthony Brown, cruisers usually dock off the coast of Coco Cay, Bahamas or other exotic locale, fill up their water guns, and go to battle in the Light-Skinned/Dark-Skinned water gun fight. Celebrities and cruisers alike are fully immersed in this popular event — with many couples actually fighting on opposite sides of this event.
