Forget all your stress and adult worries as you (softly) pummel strangers. At New York’s annual International Pillow Fight Day, the flash mob—which has attracted over 5,000 participants—turns Washington Square Park into the city’s bedroom, and the only rules to this favorite slumber-party activity are to not hit hard, avoid smashing cameras and leave weapons of the feather variety at home (down pillows create a mess). After the fun is over, donate your cushion to Dare2B, which provides care and shelter for homeless children in the city. Note: This event is not officially sanctioned by the NYC Parks department.
