In case you missed it, Saturday April 7th, was International Pillow Fight Day - Yes that's right, a day when thousands of adults and children all over the world got together in their respective cities, to stage a pillow fight against total strangers!
Now in its fifth year, the crazy event is the brainchild of two fun-loving Toronto artists - Kevin Bracken and Lori Kufner, and their organization Newmindspace. Since 2005, the duo has been organizing fun events that cost absolutely nothing - Things like inviting the general public to play capture the flag on city streets, or organizing massive city bubble battles and even, impromptu subway parties.
Whenever they organize any event for the residents of Toronto, they encourage people living in other cities to do the same - Making the fun activities truly global. This year, over 120 cities ranging from Washington D.C. in the United States to Izmir in Turkey got into the spirit with some rocking pillow fight parties!
