Things to do

International Pillow Fight Day Los Angeles

Fluff up your finest pillow and take part in this playful brawl complete with a DJ and food trucks. If you’re going to attend, the organizers make two requests on their Facebook event: first, that you bring along brooms, rakes and garbage sacks to help clean up the feathers and scraps that will inevitably litter the plaza once the fight concludes, and, secondly, that you only fight with soft pillows.
