   The St. Louis Pillow Fight will begin at 2pm at Cricket Field in Forest Park (Southeast corner of the intersection of Grand Dr. and Cricket Dr. This is very close to the parking lots in front of the MUNY, near Dwight Davis Tennis Center and close to the Visitor Center.  The field is #3 on the map.

RULES: 

1) First and foremost: NO violence - This is a loving event. 

2) Soft pillows only. No zippers, snaps, anything. Just regular pillows. (Tip: Pillows in pillow cases allow for better swinging arc) 

3) Swing with love 

4) Do not swing at anyone without a pillow or holding a camera 

5) Remove your glasses before you jump in 

6) NO FEATHERS. Let's not make a mess. 

7) DON'T LEAVE YOUR PILLOWS BEHIND. STL Improv Anywhere doesn't wanna clean them up!

9) Costumes are highly encouraged ;)
