Pillow fight … yea

The fight happened, which is good enough for me for only a week’s notice. The turnout could have been better, but those that showed had a good time. I think the folks on the Mall enjoying their meals outside got a kick out of it too. Except for the one person we heard mutter, “C’mon you kids, knock it off!” That person wouldn’t know fun if it hit him in the face in the form of a pillow, obviously. We had some people come by afterward that were eager to play, but didn’t know if they had to buy a pillow. Of course not, just bring your own and join in next time! Hopefully there’s a next time—sign up for the list or drop me an email if you’re interested.

Sorry if anyone tried to come out but didn’t find us. Apparently I could have been more clear about the location, which was in front of Christians Pizza. I forgot that this town has 20 versions of each street. And that “2nd Street Crossing” doesn’t necessarily mean anything to anyone that doesn’t dork out watching the City Council meetings on channel 10. My bad. If you were with another contingent having a fight, tell us about it.

Pillow Fight!

Join whoever else shows up for a pillow fight on the downtown mall! It’s International Pillow Fight Day.

Saturday March 22 2:00p, at the 2nd St crossing.

The rules:

  • Soft pillows only.
  • Swing lightly—many people will be swinging at once.
  • Do not swing at people without pillows.
  • Do not swing at people with cameras.
  • Remove glasses beforehand (more of a recommendation really).
  • The event is free and appropriate for all ages.
  • Wait until the signal to begin.
  • Non-synthetic pillows are better, in case stuff goes flying everywhere.

Bring your pillow concealed if you want to make things more interesting – like in a backpack, shopping bag, or big coat. Otherwise you’re carrying a pillow around downtown, and that’s just foolish.

If you really really can’t come, you can check it out on the Hook webcam.
