NYC’s 35th Annual April Fools’ Day Parade
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
New York’s irreverent April Fools’ Day Parade returns, poking fun at the past year’s displays of hype, hypocrisy, deceit, bigotry, and downright foolishness! For the 35th year, the public is invited to bring outrageous floats and dress up in colorful costumes to reflect the folly of the nuttiest politicians, crooked corporate leaders, silly celebrities and whoever else has proved to be a total fool in the past year.
The New York April Fools’ Day Parade was created in 1986 to remedy a glaring omission in the long list of New York’s ethnic and holiday parades. These events fail to recognize the importance of April 1st, the day designated to commemorate the folly of mankind. In an attempt to bridge this gap and bring people back in touch with their inherent foolishness, the parade annually crowns a King or Queen of Fools from parading look-alikes.
The parade kicks off from Grand Army Plaza at 5th Avenue and 59th Street and heads down 5th Avenue to Washington Square Park at 12:00 noon sharp on Monday, April 1, 2019.
Venue: Grand Army Plaza
59th Street and 5th Avenue
