March 22 is, of course, the anniversary of the "world's largest human checkers game" - which was played last year in Kissimmee. Definitely a cause for celebration.
But, that anniversary just so happens to fall on the same day as Pillowlando - the local bash held to honor the greater cause of World Pillow Fight Day.
You may remember the event's organizer, Brian Feldman, as "that guy who jumped up and down by City Hall all day on February 29th for Leap Year".
Lest you think Pillowlando was a gathering without mission or order, let me assure you, there were rules, ("soft pillows only"..."swing lightly"..."do not swing at people without pillows").
And here's a bright spot if you missed Pillowlando at Lake Eola: there are no fewer than NINETY-FIVE pictures in the Orlando Sentinel gallery, including this little tip-of-the-hat to The Karate Kid.
