The annual Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue isn’t really a parade as much as an extravaganza of “extreme” Easter bonnets, featuring children of all ages; period dress; and fine fashions.
Running from 47th to 57th Streets on Fifth Avenue, with most people gathering around St. Patrick’s Cathedral to see and be seen, the Fifth Avenue Easter Parade offers some of the best street photography, with people (and the more the occasional canine) dressed up for the event.
This year, among all the Easter revelers, I came across artist Andy Padre, who made some 500 paper hats (with matching shopping bags) out of everything, including Metrocards, Subway Restaurant paper cups, tissue paper and more. He gave them away — for free — to people on the street so they can enjoy a little Easter fashion today.
Here’s some images of Easter parade revelers that I found most interesting. More can be seen on my Flickr page.
