Pillow talk

From the EV Grieve inbox...maybe more of a warning...

New York City's 5th annual, and the world's 3rd annual Pillow Fight Day!

Pillows fly and teddies soar as you converge for a giant urban pillow fight! Swing and whack as you evade pillow-wielding assailants. Bring a soft pillow and wait for the signal. Pillow fight!

Rules: Please follow these guidelines to ensure a safe and fun pillow fight for everybody!

+ Soft, feather-free pillows only!
+ Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.
+ Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
+ Remove glasses beforehand!
+ Deposit pillows in donation boxes or take them with you.
+ Pajamas welcome.

Cleanup: Please eliminate your use of feathers. As the pillow fight grows in size, so does the mess. By participating, you are pledging to clean up twice the mess you made :)

This year, pillows will be collected and donated to a midtown no-kill animal shelter to make bedding for rescued dogs and cats.

According to Facebook, "This event has 16,844 confirmed guests." I hope this is worldwide and not just NYC...

It was actually a lot of fun. All kinds of people, not nearly as touristy as one would expect. I left after about an hour and a half as the event became a little more mosh pit and some of the younger folk started working out their aggression issues. HUGE crowd of participants and observers.
