There may be some snow showers this Saturday, but don't let that get in your way of good old New York City pillow fight! That's right, it's that special time of year again when strangers pummel each other with pillows, leaving feathers to fly all over Union Square.

We're told "there are over 10,000 people confirmed on Facebook! Last year there were only 1715 on Facebook and probably about 2,000 in real life." Will you be amongst the masses this year? We're guessing those in the secretive Pillow Fight Club in Bushwick will be ready for battle, let's just hope they don't harbor any bricks in their pillowcases.

Show up at 3 p.m. this Saturday to get in on the action (and tag any photos you take with "Gothamist" on Flickr). More details here.
