The Seattle Parks Department is piiiiiiissed about a pillow fight which took place in Ballard over the weekend:
On Saturday a flash mob left Ballardís Bergen Place covered with feathers after a pillow fight and on Sunday night vandals scrawled graffiti across several structures in Discovery Park. These two weekend incidents took 10 hours of staff time to clean up.
On Saturday afternoon, about 50 people converged on downtown Ballardís Bergen Place for a spirited pillow fight. After about five minutes, feathers covered the entire park. Participants left soon after that without picking up after themselves. Parks maintenance crews spent six hours cleaning up the mess and a Parks security officer is trying to track down the organizer and other participants.
The Parks Department has reported the pillow fight to the Seattle Police Department and are urging witnesses to contact police.
SPD’s Pillow Fight Investigation Unit did not return calls for comment.
