Valentine's Day Pillow Fight
Early Friday evening I followed the stream of young people, many clutching newly-purchased pillows, heading toward the Ferry Building. What started as a flash mob several years ago is now an annual event. Participants & on-lookers filled Justin Herman Plaza.
There were some vigorous pillow-wielders, so this is as close as I dared get as a non-combatant. Feathers frequently went flying, & experienced pillow fighters wore dust masks.
All in all, it was a joyful & civilized spectacle, even for the non-Romantic like myself.
