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!
It’s the only New York parade not being cancelled due to the Coronavirus!
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. And our satire knows no bounds.
The theme of the parade this year is “WITCH HUNT!”.
It will begin at Fifth Ave and 59th Street at 12 Noon, Wednesday, April 1, 2020, rain or shine. The procession will march down Fifth Avenue to Washington Square Park for the climactic crowning of the King of Fools.
The parade’s Grand Marshall is once again President Donald Trump, who this year will be wearing a witch’s cape and hat, and will be riding a witch’s broom. On his tail will be the “Whistleblowers’ Marching Band” playing “Season of the Witch” by Donovan.
Dueling color commentary will be provided by Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, and her husband, Attorney George T. Conway.

Says organizer Joey Skaggs, “With this parade, we are starting a Whistleblowers Campaign.
Blow your whistle at every Trump encounter!
Let’s vote for change in 2020.
We need new fools to make fun of.”
