Easter bonnets, ranging from elegant to outrageous took center stage in today's spectacle that is the Annual Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue from 49th to 57th Streets. An event in which there is no such thing as proper or improper chapeaux, the Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival began at 10 AM and ended at about 4 PM. According to, the tradition dates back to the middle of the 19th century, "when the social elite would attend services at one of the 5th Avenue churches and parade their new fashions down the Avenue afterwards."
