The Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival is a colorful and festive event that takes place annually on Easter Sunday in NYC and welcomes everyone of all ages.
Crowds from all over the city and beyond gather along Fifth Avenue to show off their creative and elaborate bonnets, hats, and stylish outfits. The parade is a lively celebration of spring, with participants decked out in their finest Easter attire and unique, eye-catching head wear. It is a tradition that has been going on for roughly 150 years and continues to be a cherished event in the city, attracting locals and tourists alike.
If you'd like to participate, make sure you dress to impress, but if you would rather observe, the best spot to watch is near St. Patrick's Cathedral. Past costume and hat ideas have included feathers, flowers, peeps, and a rainbow of colors. Join the fun on Sunday, April 9th, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM to celebrate Easter and all things spring.
