Pillowfight video recap, Front Porch Sundays returns, new Order Fire

Feathers flew, laughter filled the room and pillows filled the air at the International Pillow Fight Day. Pummeling strangers with strategically slashed pillows inside a brewery wasn't the same as jumping up and down in bed attacking your siblings, but participants enjoyed themselves.

The inaugural event at Unknown Brewing drew a couple of dozen, not exactly 200, and even more spectators. They came with strategically slashed pillows, for maximum feather effect, as well as pillows named - The Haymaker. Watch the mayhem in the video below.
