MANHATTAN — You're never too old to enjoy the pure joy involved in a good pillow fight. 

Hundreds of New Yorkers of all ages gathered in Washington Square Park on April 4, armed with pillows and ready to take aim at their fellow parkgoers.

One participant, Jorge Arzac, shot video of scenes from the event, and posted to it his Youtube page.

Organizers at Newmindspace said they donated around 1,000 salvageable pillows to homeless shelters in the Bronx and Brooklyn following the pillow fight.
