Fun, Frolick and Feathers

Feathers Fly Free

I was out and about in the city yesterday- wanted to see the pillow fight in Justin Hermann Plaza. I had happened upon it a couple of years ago after getting off from work. Got feathers in my hair and on my dry clean only suit. But it looked like fun and I thought someday I will get back to this! Well I did, yesterday. This event started a few years ago as a “flash mob” event which is a new term I learned yesterday that means just that- someone decides they want to do something and so they put the word out on Facebook or Myspace or Twitter and people just show up and participate. What fun!

Well, last nights event was more than a few people- there were hundreds of people- it started in the plaza and then spilled out into Market street which became blocked with feathers and people. What a great way to spend the most “hallmark” of all holidays, playing and frolicking with a bunch of people you do not know or need to know. Just pure fun. Yes there were a few over-zealous pillow pummel-ors however they were few and far between, even the littlest fighters 3 and 4 year olds were having a wonderful time. Although I did not get into the fight- I decided to play with my camera instead of a pillow, It was great fun and a great adventure.

As for the clean up- I am sure it is still going on- if you need a feather in your cap today- I suggest Justin Hermann plaza!
