There is nothing quite like a good ol' fashioned pillow fight! When the feathers get flying, you know things are getting serious! There's also nothing quite like a flash mob, and Vancouver has become known for these entertaining acts of randomness.
On Saturday, April 1st at 3pm, we are all invited to take part in the next Vancouver flash mob: the always exciting celebration of International Pillow Fight Day. What's the best way to celebrate? With an epic pillow fight of course!
The Vancouver Pillow Fight starts at exactly at 3pm and runs for about a half hour. It is held on the Robson side of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Make sure to bring along a pillow full of feathers - it's more fun that way. The idea behind the flash mob is to make it seem unexpected.
* don't be in the location until the exact minute before it begins
* hide your pillows
* at exactly 3pm, rush in screaming "PILLOW FIGHT"
Most likely there will already be a big crowd of people milling around the specific location, so it's not hard to figure out where to go.
A few other things to consider:
* soft pillows only
* swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once
* do not swing at people without a pillow or with cameras
* remove glasses beforehand
This event is free and appropriate for all ages. If your idea of fun doesn't include swinging around a sleeping device, you can always hang back and watch the action from the sidelines.
The Vancouver Pillow Fight is part of the celebration of International Pillow Fight Day that will be celebrated in almost 40 cities around the world on April 1st. Have Fun!!
