On Saturday, April 15, pick up a pillow and head over to Washington Square Park to kick off spring with a feathery party. Thanks to a recent Facebook announcement, it looks like the free annual event will return once again.
This year’s theme has yet to be released (the 2019 theme was Space Ponies) but it is expected to run for a total of two hours (3p.m. – 5p.m.) in Washington Square Park, shortly following International Pillow Fight Day which is on the first Saturday in April.
Aside from needing a soft pillow, there are a few other rules you’ll have to adhere to for maximum fun, including: swinging lightly, not swinging at people without pillows or with cameras, and taking off your glasses before the fight. All fairly logical rules.
The 2019 sleepover staple-turned-event was sponsored by Mattress Firm and even provided pillows for a $5 donation that went towards the company’s foster kid program.
Here’s a look at 2019’s epic event:
P.S., if you’re really feeling the pillow fight spirit, pajamas are more than welcome!
