From Bishop Joey:


The 36th Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade will strut its stuff yet again to honor Saint Stupid, the patron Saint of Civilizations and Parking meters.

blake a dance at stupid parade-425

Tuesday, April First, noon
Embarcadero Plaza, foot of Market st. 

This years parade will be of the sidewalk variety, thru the financial district, (the weekend version is thru North Beach).

This DIY parade will stop at the traditional Stations of Stupid; the Federal Reserve HQ for the dead lottery ticket toss, the old Stock Exchange building for the ‘Sock Exchange’, the plaza of the bare-butt mechanics for the ‘Leap of Faith’, the Bankers Heart sculpture for the penny offering and the traditional Free Lunch. This FREE event is open to the public to participate. Odd costumes, absurd signage,noise makers and a willfully irreverent attitude to the business of religion and the religion of business are encouraged.

Sponsored by the First Church of the Last Laugh, the world’s largest church. This yearly San Francisco Rite of Spring event updates the ancient European Feast of Fools and provides photographic fodder for those who think they know what a weird city we are. Fun for the whole family. RAIN or SHINE\”¦and if it snows, wear a snow tire
