LONGVIEW - Hundreds of people brought their pillows for a world record pillow fight attempt Saturday in Longview. Vista College sponsored the event, with a variety of activities for the whole family.

"I'm just ready to hit some people pretty hard!" 16-year-old Addam Corillo said. "I'm new to East Texas and this is a great way to start my time here."

The event also featured face painting, food, bounce houses and a raffle.

Organizers said they needed 6,262 people to break a 2015 world record. They didn't come close to the number of people needed but organizers say they are happy with the outcome.

They estimated a little more than 200 people showed up for the event.
