Posted: Thu Mar 20 2014
For the 29th year the New York April Fool's Committee purports to hold a march in honor of the quasi-holiday. Advertised guests include Toronto mayor Rob Ford, noted diplomat Dennis Rodman and, as grand marshal, President Barack Obama, while the lineup of floats and booths touch on recent events, including Bridgegate and the NSA leaks. (Of course, the parade itself is a running joke, please don't actually show up.) Fifth Ave and 59th St to Washington Square Park.
