Yes, Easter Sunday is a holy day, but it's also a festive one, as the annual Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival proves. New Yorkers love to don outlandish costumes, and this yearly march affords the creatively inclined an opportunity to do just that. While some marchers kept it simple (towering flowered hats, steampunk-inspired costumes), others went all-out: Witness a reveler in full Michael Jackson regalia, or the many costumed pets that accompanied their masters.
