Now you’d think that this kind of thing wouldn’t last all that long, but no, it just goes on and on. Whack whack whack.

Steve Rhodes has all the deets.

The Best Photos and Videos from the Great 2010 Valentines Day Pillow Fight

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Can you make sense of this scene at San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza near the Embarcadero Ferry Building? (Perhaps a black-and-white, slo-mo Raging Bull-style video or this official 1080p will help.)

It was the Yelp-rated Great Valentine’s Day Pillow Fight of February 14th, 2010! This joint went down yesterday despite a threatened crackdown from San Francisco’s Park Rangers and an ominous warning from San Francisco Director of Public Health Mitchell Katz - he fretted about the risk of corneal abrasions, penetrating injuries, and even orbital fractures.” Captain Bringdown, M.D. documented 17 injuries from last year that were serious enough to require medical attention at emergency rooms. Hope 2010 was safer.

Let’s take a look from the beginning. Just hop on the BART…

You’ve already seen the Conscientious Objectors in the Great Pillow Fight War of Valentine’s Day, 2009. Now you can see what it looked like up close on the field of battle.

There hasn’t been that much stuff flying around San Francisco’s Ferry Building since Barry Bonds Day, 2007

Anyway, here are the deets on our most recent twilight pillow battle.

See you next year!

Conscientious Objectors in the Great Pillow Fight War of Valentine’s Day, 2009

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

This young couple and their pillow would appear to be well-equipped to engage other combatants in tonight’s Great Valentine’s Pillow Fight of 2009 in Justin Herman Plaza near San Francisco’s Ferry Building.

However, they were way out in the Mission District shortly before the 6:00 PM scheduled time of the battle with little chance of making post-time. They were last seen heading away from the field of romantic combat. It appears they’d rather make love than war.

Good for them.
