61ache It was a giant pillow fight organized by a bunch of art people. Click the words "giant pillow fight" in the first sentence of my post - it'll take you to the site.

Flo Thanks. Between spectators and participants, the attendance was surely a few thousand.

Looks like a fun event Tom! I wish I knew about this. It would be more interesting though if they were in sleepwear!

ooo/woodsj6 You are right, I used the 24/1.4L all day. I just bought it about a week or two ago.

BottomBracket I just came upon it by chance - my girlfriend spotted it on the news that morning. As far as attire goes, there were some outrageous costumes, and a few people in sleepwear.
