Pillow Fight Thanks!
Thanks so much for coming to Boston's celebration of International Pillow Fight Day 2013! We were amazed by the turnout and grateful for the beautiful day. Of course, feel free to check out some of this sweet news coverage.
If you have any pictures or video from the event, you can click here to submit the link to our website. That way everyone will be able to see what wonderful pictures you were able to take while hundreds of people were pummeling you with pillows!
Thanks so much to all of you for making this event such a blast!
And on that note, we would now like to announce a brand new Banditos event...
Pillow Fight Location Announcement
We are excited to announce that the pillow fight will be taking place at North Point Park, at this exact location:
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THESE IMPORTANT RULES!
1) Only bring standard non-feather pillows in non-zippered pillow cases! That means absolutely no bean bag pillows, no couch cushions, and of course...NO FEATHERS! This allows us to keep the clean up simple and to minimize the impact on our surroundings.
2) If you're inviting friends or family, make sure they know about rule number 1.
3) Have the most fun you've ever had ever!
We will see you at 2:55PM, and remember, wait for the signal!

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. No feathered pillows - let's keep the mess low.
3. Don't hit anyone without a pillow
4. If you are wearing glasses, make sure you take them off.
5. Don't hit people with cameras
6. Go all out!
Costumes are of course encouraged. This event is child-appropriate!
