Vancouver Pillow Fight Club


Pillow fight in front of the art gallery!! There must have been over 100 people there, it was insane. Feathers were everywhere (nasal passages included). It is very hard to manuever when on the inside of the pillow pit. Seems like the Vancouver flashmob scene is alive and well.

And why not take a step down memory lane to the past Montreal chalk mob.

This event took place on my first day back to visit Vancouver after being away for close to 2 years. This was an amazing way to be welcomed back.
The energy of the crowd was intoxicating. I couldn't wait for another feather pillow to explode and be lifted into the air. I garantee that no matter where you were there was a tiny feather attached to your person.

Hey - That's me... right smack in the front and centre of the photo. I'm the guy in the
checked jacket with the greaser haido!

This was perhaps the greatest stress reliever I've ever experienced. Nothin' like showin' the
world how a bunch of
strangers can come together,
blow off steam in a playfully
agressive and non-lethal fashion,
huh?

I've reposted the pic as I'm in it... hope ya dn't mind!

Best,

Spontaneous lightsaber battle

Sound like fun? We thought so.

All you need to join us is a lightsaber. It could be a fancy FX saber, a Toys R Us $20 special or simply a painted cardboard tube, you decide! Come dressed as your favorite Star Wars character? Of course! But it's not essential. You don't even need to be a Star Wars fan…it’s all about getting out into the public eye, waving a sword around, having fun, and having a laugh.


Make it fun, keep it safe, and be careful of the little kids in the crowd, this is all-ages fun.
Come on by and prove once and for all who is the more powerful, the Jedi…or the Sith!

this year's event (2009).. wasn't much flashmob since poeple were hanging around in the area waiting. and there was an announcement beforehand.. interesting.

but the pillow fight itself was very fun and very loud, feathery and hilarious. check out the First Person Shooter vid i took while inside the choas!
