Easter parade in the rain?

As of now, the forecast for Easter Sunday is rain. Will the Easter parade still happen if it is raining?

Yes. You do realize it's not a typical parade, right?

Yes, that's why I wondered if it still went on in the rain. I would guess a lot of people might decide that they didn't want to parade around in the rain!

Some may but for most NYers, it won't stop them and they may be even more creative with raingear etc.

The Easter Parade. Get the idea of marching bands and floats out of your head. It is not that type of event. What you will see are a lot of folks in funny hats milling about the street. It is really about seeing others and being seen.

As for rain. WWJD - he would probably take an umbrella.

Where did you get this forecast for rain from? I watched the weather forecast on the local news on two channels and neither said anything more than a passing shower Sunday evening into Monday morning.

NOAA is currently saying a 40% chance of showers after 2 pm with a high of 53 on Sunday. Yesterday it said sunny and 57 on Easter...who knows what it will say tomorrow! :)
