They were not getting ready to take a nap with their Valentine's date but instead they were there to take part in the Great Valentine's Day Pillow fight.
The rules were simple. You were not allowed to hit anyone unless they had a pillow to hit you back with and the organizers preferred people to use pillows with natural material like down or cotton so that any debris would not harm the bay or wildlife.
Beyond that, all the broken hearted, sexually frustrated, anger ridden folks of the Bay Area were allowed to get out their frustration in a legal way, using nothing more than a pillow.
Strange? Well see for yourself. We have video of the fight below. Enjoy.
