Rain or shine, a flock of Fools will cavort through the sleepy town of Occidental on Saturday April 1, 2017 as the annual Fools’ Day Parade returns for the 12th year. From noon on, madcap folk will be seen gathering at the Community Center (corner of Bohemian Highway and Graton Road). Then, at 1:00PM in foolish formation they will frolic through town and down Bohemian Highway to end up in the parking circle that fronts the Occidental Center for the Arts, the sponsoring organization for this moment of mayhem. Rides, refreshments, spontaneous entertainment and surprises will ensue. Local low power FM station KOWS (107.3 FM) will be on hand to broadcast the demented din.
