The highlights of this fun-filled event include absurd playing with losing lotto tickets at the Federal Reserve HQ, throwing coins at the sculpture of the “Banker’s Heart” and solo socks’ exchange at the Pacific Stock Exchange. The annual parade of foolishness is held on April 1st within the Financial District. Its financial institutions are taken for the “stations of the stupid”.
