Since 2004, the Occidental Fools Day Parade has celebrated all things zany, nutty and tie-dyed on or around the first of April, culminating with live music and a block party in the parking lot of the Occidental Center for the Arts. This year, “grumps and frowners may be transformed” on Saturday, April 2, starting at the Occidental Community Center (Graton Road at Bohemian Highway, Occidental; 1pm; free; 707.874.9392). Meanwhile, the grand tradition of the Rose Parade in Santa Rosa sees a benefit bar crawl called Pubs & Roses to keep the parade alive; Christy’s on the Square, Stout Brothers, Chrome Lotus and Gary’s at the Belvedere all pitch in drink specials for a $10 donation on Friday, April 1, starting at the Belvedere. 727 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 6–9pm. $10 donation. 707.523.3728.
