More than 100 pillow fight at university
Organizers of a massive pillow fight at the University of Florida said more than 100 people took part in the flash mob event.
Scott Paterson, organizer of the event and a senior at the University of Florida, said he spread the word about the three-minute pillow fight on Facebook and more than 100 students came out pillows swinging at the chime of 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Gainesville (Fla.) Sun reported Thursday.
Although not as many people participated in the event as I would have liked, I still believe it was a success because the surrounding people were really surprised, Paterson said.
Students were passing by and saying 'Wow, I couldn't believe they did that!'
Paterson said there were no injuries, no mess left behind and no contact with police during the event.
