For those who don't know about these pillow fights, they are quite fun and simple!
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 an air horn with an additional visual 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. Go all out!
Costumes are of course encouraged. This event is child-appropriate!
Invite your friends, family and co-workers. Spread the word! Last year was a great turnout, we can break 1,000 participants this year. Let's put Boston on the International Pillow Fight Map!
