A strange and wonderful procession and April Fool’s Day tradition

The Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade is a mid-week celebration of stupidity, so wear something silly, bring your solo socks, spare pennies and losing lottery tickets and gather with all the other stupids at the foot of Market Street to do the silliest walk of all.

37th Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade
Wednesday, April 1, 2015 | Noon
Starts at Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco

The sidewalk parade will proceed 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.

Odd costumes, noise makers, satiric signage on the ‘business of religion’ and ‘the religion of business’ are encouraged.
