St. Stupid's Day Parade

St. Stupid's Day Parade

I ran across a reference to San Francisco's St. Stupid's Day Parade in a magazine someone left in the men's room. (Not THAT kind of magazine!) St. Stupid is, according to the magazine, the patron saint of parking meters.

We need to do something like this in Cleveland, maybe a Full Cleveland Parade, something that will demonstrate that we're not a bunch of bleak, humorless dolts. Imagine a precision bowling team, or a giant perogie float. The possibilities are unlimited.

Let's face it, if you want to improve the town's image, why not start by demonstrating that we're not ashamed of the town's heritage and that we have a sense of humor about its history, burning river and all.
