Adults Still Build Blanket Forts

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 19:35 GMT

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Things can get very adventurous underneath the sheets – especially with 200 adults involved.

On Saturday (Feb. 27), New Mind Space is throwing a Blanket Fort Party at an undisclosed loft in New York that measures 2,000 square feet.

The crew will be assembling a “sprawling, cozy fortress” out of pillows and blankets at the top-secret location, which will be emailed to ticket holders to avoid dealing with pajama party crashers.

The bedtime labyrinth will have dozens of rooms available for pillow fighting, cuddling, and snacking, with a kitchen providing hot cocoa.

Organizer Kevin Bracken encourages attendees to explore the huge space while dressed in their favorite jammies and robes.

They should also bring a teddy bear they can snuggle.

If anyone forgets their teddy there will be plenty of extras on hand and bedtime stories being told to send everyone into a sweet slumber.
