(02-14) 19:19 PST -- Hundreds of people filed into Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco this evening for a massive pillow fight that is becoming a Valentine's Day tradition.
"I wasn't exactly thrilled that this was the way my date started," said Lindsay Lathrope, 28, a Cole Valley resident. "But smacking my boyfriend in the head turned out to be awesome."
It was quite a spectacle as people ran down Market Street giggling with pillows under their arms. Stunned tourists and diners took photos. Some wanted to join in the fun.
Demarcus Jones was willing to pay.
"I will give you five bucks for a pillow," he screamed into the crowd.
