Pillow Fight Day 2010 - Recap

Date: April 3rd 3:00PM
Location: Cambridge Common, Harvard Square

On April 3rd, 2010, Boston was one of over 130 other cities internationally to participate in World Pillow Fight Day.  It’s our favorite holiday – there are no fireworks, you don’t get to eat a turkey dinner, but when else can you join your fellow Bostonians in a wanton free-for-all pillow fight?

Pillow Fight Day - A Success!

Hola Banditos,

Thanks so much for coming out to International Pillow Fight Day 2010!  All agreed it was a huge success.  We saw giant bananas and pink gorillas, sang along to Bohemian Rhapsody, enjoyed the glorious weather, and made sure to leave Harvard cleaner than we found it :)  Easily 1,500 people showed up to duke it out, a Boston record and hopefully a national one as well!

An official recap is on the way on what we are proud to present as our NEW and IMPROVED website!

This site has some super cool new features, including a place you can tell us about any pictures or videos you've uploaded onto facebook, flickr, youtube, or any other website.  And since we REALLY want to see all the cool pictures and videos you guys took today, take a second and give us the url using our "link your media" application, and we'll post all of it in a centralized location for everyone to share!

Just go here -->

Thanks so much to all of you for making this year such a blast. We'll see all of you at our next event.

Mysteriously yours,
The Banditos.

Show up at 2:55pm, remain inconspicuous to the best of your abilities. Hide your pillow in bags, big jackets, random trees.

At 3pm, you'll hear the very obvious signal, rush in and pillow fight away.

The rules for this pillow fight are pretty straight forward:

1. Bring a pillow, a soft one is preferred.
2. Don't hit anyone without a pillow
3. If you are wearing glasses, make sure you take them off.
4. Don't hit people with cameras
5. No feathered pillows - let's keep the mess low.
