Philadelphia Pillow Phight 2017

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.
