The fancy hats and finery were out and on display for New York City's annual Easter extravaganza.
Participants in the annual Easter Parade made their way along Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue on Sunday in a procession of the wild and whimsical.
The annual event is a New York City tradition that goes back well over a century, when the wealthy would get dressed in their best and go out for a stroll after Easter church services.
These days, people wear a slew of outrageous hats, covered with flowers and feathers and everything in between. Some people dress their pets up as well.
The most well-known reference to the procession is the movie “Easter Parade” starring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. (AP)
