We not only saw this but joined in. Women wear great hats and everyone dresses to the nines and strolls fifth avenue. They s is a happening for over 100 years and is fun if it does not rain

A NYC Easter tradition since the 1880s. The thick of it is in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center and up to 57th Street where it ends by Tiffany. A mix & match with new outfits and extravagant hats. Anyone can participate. Children, adults...More
