Revelers marched along Fifth Avenue in New York City Sunday for the annual Easter Parade dressed in their Sunday best, and donning extravagant, colorful hats and bonnets.

The Easter Parade is an old tradition in New York City. From NBC New York:

The parade tradition began as a 19th-century gathering of New York's social elite in their Easter best after church services — along with similar parades around the nation that took off after the Civil War. New York's version has become a semi-secular feast.
