Blooming Bright Bonnets Abound at the Easter Parade on 5th Ave.

The unusually warm weather brought out a huge crowd this year for an original New York City tradition, the Easter parade. Since the Gilded Age of the 1880s, New Yorkers have dressed up to the nines and casually walked up 5th Ave. with the latest fashions. Today, the tradition has evolved into a combination of well dressed celebrants and creative expressions of bonnets and top hats. The blocks from 49th St. to 55th St. are blocked off where street entertainers and music fill the air on a day of celebration. New Yorkers from 3 to 93 or more continue to show some of the best creativity in the country. SomeĀ pets enjoy bringing their owners to the parade so they can show off how cute they can look. If you have never been to this parade, it is one of the most colorful and creative you will experience. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had taking them.
