The 30th Annual April Fools’ Day Parade in New York City

New York City April Fools' Day Parade

Veteran prankster Joey Skaggs has announced New York City’s 30th Annual April Fools’ Day Parade, scheduled for April 1, 2015. This year’s theme is “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” and the grand marshal will be Mayor Bill de Blasio.

We’re 30 and proud of it! New York’s spectacular April Fools’ Day Parade kicks into its fourth decade of hilarious irreverence, poking fun at the past year’s public displays of hype, hypocrisy, deceit, bigotry, and downright foolishness. Nothing and no one is sacred. Our satire knows no bounds. In honor of our 30th year, we’ll be giving 30 lucky revelers free cartoon interpretations of their favorite taboo religious icons, picked at random at the end of the parade in Washington Square Park.
