Pillow Fight Toronto 2014

Giant pillow fight brings a little catharsis to city hall

Has there ever been a better time to hold a pillow fight at city hall? As mayoral candidates amp up their campaigns to take office, this is a place that's both contested and, depending on your feelings about the mayor, contemptible. In other words, it was the perfect stomping grounds for a bunch of people looking to smash each other in the face with down pillows. Hosted by Newmindspace and Atomic Lollipop, the 2014 edition of the Toronto Pillow Fight offered a chance to purge one's frustrations all in the name of fun.

The turnout on Saturday was, perhaps, a bit disappointing -- about 200 people at its peak -- but there was no shortage of enthusiasm despite the cool temperatures. The superheroes vs. villains theme was taken up by just enough participants to make for some bizarre mini-battles (like, say, Luigi duking it out with a junior Spiderman). All in all, it was an entertaining afternoon for those who made it out.
