Offbeat Traveler: International Pillow Fight Day
If you have the urge to hit someone, show up at Pershing Square on April 2 with a pillow for International Pillow Fight Day. When the air horn sounds at 2 p.m., watch the feathers fly, not just in Los Angeles but in almost 100 cities worldwide.
The basic rules for this free event include using only soft pillows, swinging them lightly and not swinging at someone who doesn't have a pillow. There is no set end time for the event, but participants are asked to help with cleanup once the pillow fight has concluded.
