For pretty much no reason except silly fun, people in cities all over the world will meet up on Saturday April 3rd to take part in International Pillow Fight Day. Part of the "urban playground movement," this is a non-commercial event aimed at having people take part as participants, not consumers, and to give people the chance to do something playful in public space. Okay, and it's really fun to smash into friends and strangers with feather-filled pillows.If you want to join in or just watch the goofy fun here in Los Angeles, you'll want to be in Pershing Square at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 3.

Since this is about fun and good times, the emphasis is on fast and energetic pillow fighting (about 15 minutes straight) and then a total clean-up. If you plan on diving in the feathered frenzy, make sure you aren't out for blood, and that you only hit people with pillows (and not people with cameras).
