Want something fun to do on Saturday, Apr 4? Why not grab a pillow & head down to Nathan Phillips Sq to participate in "Pillow Fight Toronto"! You can leave your pillow there if you don't want to use it to rest your weary head on the way back home on TTC ;). Also, if you're really wanting to get into it...PJs can be a fashion statement!!

There are some rules, of course:

  • Take only soft, feather-free pillows
  • Swing lightly - it's fun... not an event to work out anger management
  • Don't swing at people w/ cameras, smile instead!
  • And don't swing at those who don't have a pillow - they're prob just curious as to why everyone is having so much fun!
  • If you wear glasses - remember to remove them
