25th Annual April Fool's Day Parade

Legendary prankster Joey Skaggs is organizing his 25th Annual April Fool’s Day Parade in New York City this Thursday, April 1st. The theme for this year’s parade is “Up, Up and Away”. Here’s the full press release issued by the New York April Fool’s Committee.

Led by Grand Marshall Ben Bernanke, the parade will kick off with the Where’s-the-Money Marching Band playing this year’s theme song by the Fifth Dimension “Up, Up and Away in My Beautiful Balloon.” Color commentary will be provided by Sarah Palin for her new Fox TV show “We Make It Up, You Believe It.” Thanks to a contribution by a secret donor in honor of the parade’s 25th anniversary, 10,000 red, white and blue helium balloons, each with a crisp one-dollar bill attached, will be released along the parade route.
