My interest in Easter as a holiday is patently non-religious. But I am ceaselessly fascinated by the yearly Easter parade that shuts down a chunk of Fifth Ave., where all manner of people don all manner of “bonnets” and outfits in celebration of a day that I suspect for a good number of participants has as little religious significance as it does for me. The Easter Bonnet Parade in NYC is just a good time. Even Irving Berlin said as much:
“In your Easter bonnet
with all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.”
Mr. Berlin failed to mention the gentlemen but I think you get the picture. So here are some of my pictures from the 2018 Easter Bonnet Parade.
(I never claimed this blog was especially timely).
Stay colorful, New York.
