It’s not every day you see a pillow fight in Central Riverside Park.
But on Saturday, a small group of people gathered for a belated International Pillow Fight Day celebration.
Isabel Quezada, a 22-year old Wichita resident, organized the event after she saw mass public pillow fights in London, New York City and Chicago on Snapchat, a social media app for sharing photos and videos.
“I thought it was cool, so I thought we should have one here,” she said.
International Pillow Fight Day was April 4 this year. And according to pillowfightday.com, groups from 71 cities around the world registered pillow fight parties.
This year, the Wichita group was small, mostly family and friends, and Quezada said she hopes to throw the event on pillow fight day next year.
“Maybe we could have let people know more in advance with better advertising,” said Maria Salazar, a friend of Quezada’s who helped plan the event. “We have to do it next year to make it better.”
