Pick up a pillow and come dressed as your favorite superhero or villain
Pillow Fight Day 2014Washington Square Park (1 Washington Sq E New York, NY 10011) Map it Free
Newmindspace has been throwing the best pillow fights this side of a topless sorority house for the past several years; other cities caught on, and now it's a world-wide event. Play by the rules (swing softly, please), and a gleefully good time is guaranteed. This year's theme is superheroes vs villains, so pillow-wielders are encouraged to dress for the occasion. An added bonus that's sure to tickle your soft spot: leftover or abandoned pillows from the day are donated to homeless shelters in Brooklyn and the Bronx. So grab a feather-free fluffy weapon (the only kind allowed), sport some superman pjs, and get ready for some real kidding around.
