In celebration of April Fool’s Day, a parade of Athenians marched with musical instruments along the streets of Athens, Georgia on Thursday, April 1, 2021.

Organized by the Pink Flamingo of Athens, GA and Peepa Show, the spectacle’s mission was to keep Athens weird.

“It really is just a way to bring the community together, have fun outside … and be in public so that people know that weirdness is happening in public and we're not ashamed of it,” the Pink Flamingo said. “I'm not alone and there are others out there who love the mission of just keeping Athens weird and being weird here.”
