At the annual Saint Stupid's Day Parade on April 1, 2001

The Saint Stupid's Day Parade is an annual parade in San Francisco on April 1.[1] It was founded by Ed Holmes (Bishop Joey of the First Church of the Last Laugh[2]) in the late 1970s with the understanding that one of the unifying bonds in society is stupidity. If April 1 falls on a weekday, the parade starts at the foot of Market Street and follows a route through the financial district. If April 1 falls on a weekend, the parade starts at the Transamerica Pyramid, proceeds up Columbus Avenue and ends at Washington Square.[3] The parade begins at noon.[4] The parade includes free lunch, confetti, flags and costumes.[2]
