This upcoming Saturday from 3-5pm, silly-spreaders and public art-rejoicers Newmindspace are throwing Toronto’s 5th annual Pillow Fight! And it’s at the perfect time too, you can sleep in late AND still make it to your hot date afterwards (or the Pillow Fight Afterparty, location TBA), all fired up from pwning everyone. Always wanted to try out for PFL but too skrrd? Want to blow off some steam, and probably some calories? Get your friend back for always spilling your beer, or hit on that hot guy (literally)? Then make sure to RSVP on Facebook (http://tinyurl.com/pfto2010) plus to get afterparty info, gather friends and pillows, and GO!!!
Outdoors, free, and close to the subway. A chance to celebrate Yonge-Eglinton Square before it gets bulldozed and turned into more stores. Feel free to donate your pillow afterwards; it will be collected by The Pillow Truck and redistributed to deserving organizations. A few tips to keep things clean and simple:
– Soft, feather-free pillows only!
– Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.
– DO NOT swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
– Remove glasses beforehand!
– Deposit pillows in donation boxes or take them with you.
– Pajamas & costumes welcome.
– Clean up your mess
Pick your costume and happy swinging!!
