On April 1, the annual Philly Pillow Phight took place in Washington Square Park. The event was organized to coincide with International Pillow Fight Day. From the Market-Frankford Line’s 8th Street station, a slew of people with pillows in hand walked to the park. Anthony Farraj returned to the pillow fight for the second year in a row. Farraj said he enjoys fighting in a luchador uniform.
“The kids like to call me Nacho Libre, from the movie,” he said.
Hoseong Cho, a freshman biology major came to the event with Jerry So, his resident assistant at Hardwick Hall. So provided Cho’s floormates with SEPTA tokens for the event. So, a junior bioengineering major, said it was a great way to meet people and he would be back next year.
