Caleb Derby of Norristown, Pa. hosts the Philadelphia Pillow Phight every year on International Pillow Fight Day, the first Saturday of April.
Over 100 cities worldwide participate, and this year over 100 people showed up to Philly’s event in Washington Square Park. Adults and kids battled it out for over an hour, then left their pillows behind for Got Laundry? to collect and distribute to the homeless.
Next year’s pillow fight falls on April 7th.
To learn more about how the pillow fight originated, read my story for Billy Penn.
In December of 2016, senior Temple film student Kara Ganley produced a music video for RJD2 as part of her capstone course. The crew shot the video at a dance studio in North Philadelphia and included some of the dance students in the shots.
The stills for the shoot will be used for the students’ Kickstarter to raise money to produce two more music videos for their capstone course.
