Photography of the Easter Parade

If you are in New York City on Easter Day and walk down Fifth Avenue you will see children dressed in their Sunday best, hats made of jellybeans and bird nests, a band with trumpet players in tuxes, and swing dancers.

Easter Day Parade

The Easter Day Parade in New York City is an informal parade where people wear their Sunday Best and elaborate hats. Between 49th and 57th Streets on Fifth Avenue you can walk in the street or stand on the side and watch. If you dress up, be prepared to stop often for photographs.

This year I spotted many dogs sporting bunny ears and miniature hats. I saw a mound of butterflies atop someone’s head. There was a girl and her mother with bird’s nests as hats and a whole family wearing straw hats filled with flowers. And of course, there was a swing band and dancers.

And if you missed the Easter Day Parade this year, hopefully my photographs will encourage you not to miss it next year.
