Happy Easter, HollywoodLifers! The annual Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival is happening today on Fifth Avenue at 47th Street in NYC and will continue up toward 57th Street. It all starts at 10:00 AM EST, and many will gather at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is the best place to see the parade from. CLICK HERE TO WATCH A LIVE STREAM OF THE EASTER PARADE IN NYC.
The coolest part is that celebrants are expected to break out their fanciest hats for the festivities! It’s a NYC tradition that goes back to the 1870s, made famous by composer Irving Berlin with the help of Judy Garland and Fred Astaire. Take a look at some of the craziest bonnets from last year:
