Pictures from World Pillow Fight Day

Saturday was World Pillow Fight Day. What, you missed it? Fortunately, we were on the scene as dozens of down-wielding bandits converged by the river in Chicago for a feathery assault.

Participants were on their best behavior, relatively speaking, as they beat the crap out of each other for several minutes. Any time feathers began flying, the battle was stopped so people could gather up the feathers and put them into a garbage can, rather than letting them drift into the river.

World Pillow Fight Day occurs in cities around the globe, from Amsterdam to Los Angeles, so if you missed this one, mark your calendars for next year.

Take a look at our video from the event, and scroll down for more pics.

    • Yes, and the nap occurred only 15 minutes after it started. It only lasted a few minutes, though. Then the beating resumed!
