Easter Parade 2009

This lovely couple had one of the best outfits at the Easter Parade this weekend. The crowd who dressed up this year was somewhat smaller compared to the past two years that I was there. And it was really cold too.

So if you had an outfit, what would you wear to the Easter Parade?

I would NOT wear what that couple wore! But I would probably look equally ridiculous in a bunny outfit, carrot costume, etc.

I'm sick of it feeling like winter! When the hell is spring going to arrive?

Babzy said...

We have no easter parade here ! Funny couple ;)

Charlotte said...

Hilda said...

Oh wow. This is the first time I'm hearing about and seeing pictures of your Easter parade. It looks like so much fun!

I'll be game to join, but I doubt if I can get my husband to wear anything like that!

Susu said...

I'd definitely be a bunny with a pink ribbon around my neck!

Great pic,this couple look like they are game for a laugh.
Not sure what I would dress up as.

Spectacular hats. Looks like a lot of fun.

Paz said...

LOL! I like her matching purse, too.

Paz (who may get into the spirit of things and wear a hat)

these two look smashing.
I love how they are so dressed up too. Very Eastery

Daryl said...

GAWD he looks unhappy or maybe just Xanxed out ...

My Easter outfit consisted of my holey jeans, a sweatshirt, scarf, gloves and leather jacket as I wandered the Greenflea where no one wore a basket on their head

Virginia said...

What did she have to promise him to get him to put on that ridiculous hat???? That's a prize winner today Ming. I don't like to dress up. I can make a fool out of myself on a regular basis without it!

It was way too cold here for a parade and it looks like it was cold enough there. I like the man's shoes.

marley said...

Now thats what you call a hat! Looks like a chicken or two died to make them! Lol!

valeria said...

Awesome parade! We have nothing of the sort here!
I have no idea what I 'd wear... but I like the lady's hat!!

Alexa said...

I was going to say exactly what Virginia said—because I can't believe any guy is THAT good a sport!
Sorry I missed it, but you probably got the best shot with this one.

Give new meaning to the phrase, "New Yorkers are mad as a hatter!"

I had no idea until I watched the report on NY1 this weekend that there even was an Easter parade!

I'd wear a huge pastel hat.

OMG, I cannot stop laughing. This is just too much, lol. Looks like a chicken will escape any minute. I love the combination of urban classy farmer look and the silliness of the hats.

I have to contradict Daryl: I bumped into two women at Greenflea, our local farmers market & flea market, they were wearing flowerpots hats. I am pretty sure they escaped from the parade.

Yet another thing from the past I had forgotten, easter parades!!! We used to do them in school, all 27 or so kids from the school would parade around in hats they had made, but no-one around here does anything like that anymore. =(
