The Easter Parade; The Route, Street Closures And More

Easter Parade

The weather will possibly reach 80 Easter Sunday. The warm spell lasts only for that day but this means The Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival will be strutting it’s over-the-top,coutour and handmade made finery.

The tradition began in the 19th century, and was a high-society affair; originally taking place in Central Park. Soon they ended up on Fifth Avenue, which inspired the Judy Garland and Fred Astaire musical, Easter Parade. The tradition has remained a spring staple. Attendees take the opportunity to go all-out, with creative hats, many decked out with flowers, tiny renderings of NYC landmarks and other accessories.

The event begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday, on Fifth Avenue at 47th Street, and continues up the avenue toward 57th Street. St. Patrick’s Cathedral as well as other churches along the way will be crowded and offering concerts and services.
