Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival If you’re in New York for Easter, then now is your chance to be “the grandest lady [or gent] in the Easter parade.” The annual tradition has come a long way since its 1870s origins and 1948 immortalization in the classic Irving Berlin movie musical, but is still full of pageantry and playful fun. The informal promenade stretches along Fifth Avenue, from 49th to 57th streets, and begins at around 10 am, ending by 4 pm. Bring your bonnet, your camera and your smile!
