The New York City Easter 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.
There seem to be more and more parade goers each year with the Fifth Avenue getting more and more crowded. But the Easter Parade is still fun to go to, dressed up or not, it’s fun to see the people. Many people have hats covered in flowers, candy, birds, and so much more. There are also groups of people in mid 19th century clothes, or perhaps their Sunday best clothes. In any event the people watching is great fun, don’t miss out next year!
