SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A Valentine’s Day battle had feathers flying at the eighth annual “Great San Francisco Pillow Fight” Thursday evening.
Hundreds of participants armed with pillows filled Justin Herman Plaza at the foot of Market Street waiting for the Ferry Building clock to strike 6 p.m. to begin the fight.
One couple celebrating nine months since their wedding was waiting at the outskirts of the crowd to join in on the fight. They had purchased goggles to protect themselves from the clumps of feathers floating through the air and whacks to the head.
Oakland resident David Hamill, 39, surprised his wife, Faith, 34, with Valentine’s plans to battle it out with pillows.
