At the Easter Parade Pink Saturday

For our Pink Saturday fun this week we're going to Fifth Avenue for the Easter Parade. Though the afternoon started out a little overcast it was still fun to sit outside and then stroll down Fifth Avenue to see extraordinary hats.

There were Easter basket hats...
 
more Easter basket hats...
 
 
...and bird cage hats!
 
There were lots of bunny ears...
 
 
...and more bunny ears!

Despite the crowds -- it sounds odd for someone living in New York City, I'm not a fan of crowds -- I had a lot of fun with my friend, Lynda, looking at the hats. We were accompanied by the grandest monkey in the Easter Parade, Pepe. He was also the only monkey I saw during our visit to Fifth Avenue.

We found a nice place to watch the scene on Fifth Avenue at 59th Street. The building in the background is the Plaza Hotel.

I hope it was as happy an Easter Day for all of the visitors to Buttercupland as Pepe and I had.

Wishes for a bright and sunny week.

I don't like crowds either, but I'd love to be in New York for one of the grand parades. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

LOVED seeing those pretty Easter bonnets. Pepe looks quite dapper with those bunny ears.

Easter bonnets are wonderful and so are parades. That would be something to see for sure ! Hope you have a Happy Monday !

Wow! So there really is an Easter Parade! I think it would be great to see people's creativity--and fun to watch them try to balance their creations on their head!
