>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Transamerica Pyramid | 600 Montgomery St, San Francisco, CA
The Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade is a celebration of stupidity, so wear something silly, bring your solo socks, spare pennies and losing lottery tickets and gather with all the other stupids to do the silliest walk of all.
Where’s the parade go? The chosen route depends if April Fool’s Day falls on a weekday or on the weekend. Typically if it’s midweek, the parade starts at Justin Herman Plaza and winds its way through the Financial District, and if it falls on a weekend, the parade starts at the Transamerica Pyramid and goes up Columbus.
39th Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade
Saturday, April 1, 2017 | Noon
Transamerica Pyramid to Washington Square Park
Odd costumes, noise makers, satiric signage on the ‘business of religion’ and ‘the religion of business’ are encouraged.
If April 1st falls on a Monday-Friday: Meet at Justin Herman Plaza
The sidewalk parade typically proceeds to make ritual stops at the Pacific Stock Exchange, where they encourage you to bring your lonely solo socks (i.e. the “sock” exchange), then to the “Banker’s Heart” sculpture to throw your pennies at it. Finally, the parade stops at none other than the Federal Reserve HQ, where you will part with your losing lotto tickets.
If April 1st falls on a Saturday or Sunday: Meet at the Transamerica Pyramid
It all starts at the foot of the “point building” (Transamerica Pyramid) at noon and heads up Columbus Ave. to Washington Square Park to ask the question, “What is Ben Franklin doing in Washington Square Park?” There will be a ridiculous talent contest and free lunch.
