Yep, it's almost time for the entire city to get smacked in the face with pillowy goodnes. We're talking about Volume One's April Fools Day Pillow Fight. This is the seventh year we've done this, and it just gets bigger every time. Sunday, April 1, 3pm sharp, on the corner of Madison & Forest Streets. Fluff up them pillows, construct your anti-pillow defense systems/costumes, and work on your swing, because the hour approaches. You can check out many, many more details here.
