International Pillow Fight Day - First Saturday in April

INTERNATIONAL PILLOW FIGHT DAY

International Pillow fight day is a worldwide event held in many cities that takes place on the first Saturday in April. From Hong Kong to Vancouver to Dallas to London pillows are getting fluffed and prepped to do soft battle on this day. It’s free, and families are encouraged to participate. In many cities, pillows and proceeds will go towards the homeless.

According to The Wall Street Journal, more than 5,000 participated in New York City.
