(1010 WINS) -- Hundreds of people armed with fluffy weapons descended on Washington Square Park to celebrate the annual International Pillow Fight Day on Saturday.

Fighters of all ages joined the out-of-bedroom melee, some even dressed the part in costumes and pajamas.

Mattress Firm, this year's New York City host, was accepting $5 donation to their foster kids program for a cotton-stuffed weapon of their choice.

All the surviving pillows are donated to local homeless centers.

The day was also celebrated around the world including in Spain, Britain, Finland and Canada.
