Paging All Pillows
By Amy Mikel in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 19, 2008 7:05PM
Pulled from our tips page: this Saturday is World Pillow Fight Day, and public pillow fights are being organized in cities from Beijing to Boise.
Similar events have been covered by the –ists before; urban public pillow fights are not a new concept. The Chicago Pillow Fight Club will be hosting the local celebration of Pillow Fight Day, taking place Saturday at 2 p.m. in front of the Art Institute. Sometimes we wonder how similar undercover public events can work within the stoic operating guidelines of a big city, but as always, the rules are simple:
- Everyone is welcome
- Wait for the signal
- Don’t hit anyone without a pillow, or with a camera
- Try not to hurt anyone
- BYOP (obviously)
Chicago Pillow Fight Club also promises prizes for best decorated pillow, a costume contest, and a chance to win “Official Pillow Fight Club Member” pillowcases.
