A MASSIVE PILLOW fight planned for the Phoenix Park in Dublin has attracted over 8000 people to sign up on the event’s Facebook page.

The idea has gone viral, under the title of ‘Giant Pillow Fight’ and sounds like decent craic, according to the page:

This is a flash mob concept event designed to get people letting off a little steam whilst having some feathery fun.

The event is set for September 26th, but an exact location and time has not been revealed.

DailyEdge.ie has reached out to both the organisers and the Gardai about the event, but have not received a reply as of yet.

The description for the feathery fun reads:

This is not an ‘organised’ event, it’s a free, willing, gathering of people who want to hit each other with pillows.

The group behind the event on Facebook appear to organise similar shindigs for the freshers in UK Universities:

But a post to the event page from earlier this week shows they might also be associated with Dublin freshers too:

It’s hard to know at this stage what exactly will happen on September 26th, but the organisers are certainly aware of the Phoenix Park’s vast spaces for their pillow extravaganza:

Phoenix Park is pretty bloody huge so we will announce an exact location and time the day before the event takes place.

But most importantly, it’s bring your own pillow.
