Every year on Easter Sunday people from all over show off their finest Easter bonnets. For many, it’s a great day for families (and pets!) to come out and participate in a New York City pageant that dates back to late 1800s.

From around 10 A.M. until 4 P.M. the parade will march north along Fifth Avenue from 49th Street to 57th Street.

The best place to watch the event is near St. Patrick’s Cathedral and if you plan on taking photos, the majestic church will provide you with a nice backdrop.


The following streets will be closed during Easter Sunday Mass and the Easter Bonnet Parade:

Fifth Avenue between East 47th Street and East 57th Street.
