March 22nd was International Pillow Fight Day, and Chicago was one of the cities that participated in the fun. It took place at 2pm in front of the Art Institute. There was a long line of people waiting to go into the museum, they didn't expect to see this at all! Shooting this event was the most fun I've had in a long time, I made the mistake of wearing my wool coat to this thing, the cleaners are going to have a field day with that! Walking back to my car parked by Union Station, people on the sidewalks were cracking up at me since I looked like I had been tarred and feathered! I was amazed at all the feathers that were stuck in my hair, I had to remove them using a fine toothed comb ;)

Fantastic! I love this idea! It reminds me of the Wet Parade in Eagle Idaho that I saw while on the road. The second half of the parade was a water fight between the towns people and the fire department! It was really funny to watch but if yo had any kind of electronics you had better be in the background a good bit! Great post!

Nice! Looks a bit like the pillow fight we had in Toronto last month, feathers everywhere! At least it looks like there are more participants than photographers!
