Florida joins in pillow fight

ORLANDO, Fla., April 3 (UPI) -- You're never too old to enjoy a good pillow fight, say participants in Florida's version of International Pillow Fight Day.

More than 125 people took part in Orlando's take on the annual pillow fight fest Saturday, joining like-minded folks in more than 115 cities worldwide, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Sunday.

Performance artist Brian Feldman was in charge of the melee -- for the fourth time. Feldman, 31, said the pillow fight is "a fun thing that brings people back to their childhood."

He announced the location of this year's fight on Twitter early Saturday.

"You're never too old for a good pillow fight," said Mauricio Murillo, who purchased a new pillow for the event.

Feldman said the rules for the 30-minute fight-fest were simple. Soft pillows only, no hard hitting and don't aim for people with glasses.

The participants were dressed in pajamas, robes and ninja costumes and themed pillows were popular. One was decorated with the word "OUCH."

Seventeen-year-old Carly Jo Jackson said she didn't remember the last time she was in a pillow fight.

"I'm going to whack people I don't know," Jackson said.
