Pillow Fight Underway in Washington Square Park

Not enough celebration for you with Passover and Easter falling on the same weekend? Well, today is also International Pillow Fight Day , and a celebration is happening now in Washington Square Park.

The pillow fight started at 3 p.m. and had a few rules:

+ Soft, feather-free pillows only!

+ Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.

+ Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras.

+ Remove glasses beforehand!

+ Deposit pillows in donation boxes or take them with you.

+ Use #pillowfightday on Twitter.

+ Pajamas welcome.

Participants are also encouraged to "eliminate [their] use of feathers."

The theme, according to a tweet from NY Metro Parents, is "bunny ears."
