NYC 5th Ave Easter Parade

Delightfully, we stumbled into the 5th avenue Easter parade after brunch. The street was closed; hundreds of people tumbled out of St. Patrick’s cathedral after morning mass, dressed in their finest. Others — including gorgeous drag queens, families with decorated strollers, socialites with hats tailored to match those worn by their teacup dogs, and just about anything else you can imagine — wandered with wide smiles down the street as the church bells tolled endlessly.

Some were celebrating Easter, others Spring and yet others the opportunity to dress in costume and be photographed.

It was a surprising display of happy humanity. Everyone was so nice to each other and there was an attitude of pure celebration.
