Costumes and Pillow Alliances

Haha. You think you can handle me? I'm just the bait.
Wouldn't it be amazing if you got pummeled by a gorilla, a banana, penguin, or Spidey?!  Recycle last years Halloween costume or better yet get some like-minded folks together and create a team of pillow pugilists.  You can even come on out in your jammy jams. What flavor will San Jose bring to this event?

Keep SJ beautiful. We love OUR CITY.

A pillow fight can cost a city a lot of money to clean up after.  If you don't believe us just check out this article on last years SF pillow fight from the SFGate.  Granted they have a tough job with thousands of pillow pugilists, but we'd like to do our best to do this right this first time around.  

We want to adopt the Burning Man philosophy of LEAVE NO TRACE.  Feathers of Fury organizers will bring out some big black garbage bags and latex gloves to pass out to help deal with the aftermath.  

How can you help?

-Use pillows that won't bust. 
-Set a good example and Encourage others to help.
-When you are finished with a garbage bag, leave it next to the nearest trash receptacle.

Items to bring that will be extremely useful.:
Extra Garbage Cans
Gas-powered Leaf Blowers
Large Push Brooms

How to survive a Pillow Brawl

An insightful guide authored by GENE from SF. Click the Jump!

Ride your bike to the Feathers of Fury!

A group of SJBP riders have set up a Pre-Ride from a local pillow vendor.  Brilliant!

The Rules

The sacred commandments of Feathers of Fury are as follows ... 

1.   Tell everyone about the Pillow Fight.

2.   Wait until the whistle/airhorn signal to begin.

3.   Smile.
4.   Soft pillows only!
 No buckwheat or special surprises hidden in your pillow.
5.   NEVER swing at people without pillows or with cameras.

6.   Tell EVERYONE about the Pillow Fight.

7.   Remove glasses beforehand!
8.   Don't hit people with a pillow unless they want it.

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

10.  This is not a little kids event.

11.  If you don't like it ... just walk across the street.


What is this?

In the great American slumber party tradition inspired by SF's The Great Pillow Fight, it's been decided that Downtown San Jose needs to jump in on the fun. A few of us got together and started to spread the word around town through blogs, tweets, FB and IMs and it has been spreading like wildfire.  San Jose needs events like this to thrive so we can enjoy and live healthier lives all while loving our City.  A little bit of laughter can go a long way.  Thanks to the playful minds of SF for paving the way.
