New York’s irreverent April Fools’ Day Parade returns, poking fun once again at the past year’s displays of hype, hypocrisy, deceit, bigotry, and downright stupidity. Nothing is sacred. Our satire knows no bounds.
For the 38th year, the public is encouraged to participate, in or out of costume, with or without floats, and may join the procession at any point along the parade route. Floats can be no wider than 10’ and no longer than 30’. They can be self-propelled, towed, pushed or pulled. Customized bicycles, tricycles, baby carriages and aerial balloons are welcome.
The parade will form at 12:00 noon sharp on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at Grand Army Plaza, 5th Avenue and 59th Street, in Manhattan and head down 5th Avenue to Washington Square Park.
