Easter was sunny and bright today and I had a wonderful time joining the Easter Parade. Just to be clear it's not really a parade, but a portion of Fifth Avenue is closed to traffic. It seemed that all of New York was out enjoying the day. I was not decked out, but I felt like I was in a minority. There were some very creative outfits and a fabulous array of hats.
There were many Easter Bunnies in attendance, but this bunny was my favorite. I especially enjoyed the flower wreath that was entwined in the Bunny's ears.
I liked the wide range of hat styles in this group. There was the classic bunny ears on the right and the Easter themed group in the center. I also liked the varied shades of pink in their clothes.
Here we see the ever popular balloon bonnet, also in varied shades of pink.
There were many extremely creative hats. These hats are modeled on New York landmarks and the Empire State Building is on the right and the Chrysler Building on the left.
This trio may be my favorite of the day. I enjoyed all of the bright colors and they made the most artistic photograph, with sunglasses and black coats.
Of course Easter isn't just bunnies, hats and candy. This is St. Patrick's Cathedral. This section of Fifth Avenue in front of the Cathedral was completely filled with people.
The cornerstone for the Cathedral was placed in 1858 and it was opened in 1879. When the cornerstone was placed this was the northern edge of building in Manhattan.
I took a lot of pictures today, a lot! I plan to be back tomorrow with photographs of Rockefeller Center, which was beautifully decorated for the spring. I definitely need a return visit when the area is less crowded just to enjoy the flowers and decorations.
I hope you've enjoyed our Pink Saturday Easter fun. Looking ahead to this week in Buttercupland...We will visit Rockefeller Center, there will be a giveaway and I'm thinking of a book themed post. Please stop by.
As ever, thanks for visiting. I hope all that celebrate Easter had a wonderful day and wishes for a wonderful week to all.
