Throwback Thursday "The NYC Easter Parade"

A fabulous photograph of folks taking part in the Easter Parade on 5th Avenue. This tradition has been going on since the 1880's, it has been drawing less people in recent years, but still fun. In the late 1800s, New York's churches began to decorate their sanctuaries with Easter flowers. Parishioners walked from church to church to inspect the floral displays — and so began the custom of the NYC Easter parade.

During the 1920s, Atlantic City's parade attracted 200,000 and more. The parade there had become a vacation carnival of costuming and consumption—a rollicking amusement for the tourist.

I am hoping to attend the parade in NYC this year, should be loads of fun!

Have you ever been to a Easter Parade? Did you wear your Easter Bonnet? Do tell ..........
