International Pillow Fight Day 2011 -- Leave Your Feathers at Home.

Tomorrow, April 2, is International Pillow Fight Day! In cities around the world, participants will gather with their pillows and fight!

New York City's 6th annual pillow fight will take place at 3pm in Union Square, at E. 14th Street & Broadway. Newmindspace, which organizes the NYC event, reports that last year's pillow fight took place in over 150 cities worldwide, and drew a crowd of 5000 in Union Square alone. Organizers have requested that participants NOT bring feathered pillows, as it delays the clean-up process.

Get all of the information here.

Newmindspace is run by Lori Kufner and Kevin Bracken.  Follow newmindspace on facebook.

The most important things you need to know:
  • bring a soft, featherless pillow and swing lightly
  • wait for the signal before fighting 
  • swing ONLY with your pillow and do not hit anybody who is holding a camera
  • remove your glasses before engaging in pillow-fighting 
  • if you will re-use your pillow, remember to take it with you. if not, there will be pillow donation boxes. 
  • pajamas and soft teddy bears are welcome
  • Pillows for Puppies will be facilitating the after-fight clean-up effort
Aptly named WHACK! afterparty will take place at Hiro Ballroom, located on 9th Ave and 17th Street. Reduced cover charge for the afterparty is available here (the Fight, of course, is free!).
