Feathers will fly at this fun, flash-mob type event which takes place on Valentine’s Day 2012 just as the Ferry Building clock tower strikes 6pm.

Nearly 1,000 San Franciscans descend on Justin Herman Plaza with feather-stuffed pillows to run Braveheart-like at full speed at one another to lovingly beat the crap out of each other until the whistle blows.
Tip: Bring a mask or something to cover your mouth – it’s easy to choke on flying feathers
Is this Pillow Fight really taking place for 2012?
A word of caution: We found Pillow Fight 2012 posted on The Bold Italic and and a few random posts on Facebook, but note that the pillow fight isn’t listed on www.pillowfightday.com, the main website that lists tons of pillow fights around the world.
So we have no idea if this event is real or not, or if there will be any organizers or not – but who cares really? If 1,000 people “think” there’s a pillow fight and all show up at Justin Herman Plaza at 6pm – then there’s gonna be a mother f’n pillow fight!
If you do show up, please please please bring one garbage bagand help pick up feathers afterward.
