Sunday best gets new meaning during this annual procession, wherein participants show off elaborately constructed hats—we’re talking noggin-toppers shaped like the NYC skyline and the Coney Island Cyclone, not just a boring old fedora. The tradition started in the mid-1800s, when high-society ladies would promenade in their Easter finery after church, and has since evolved into a showcase for millinery. Fifth Ave from 49th to 57th Sts.

So many different hats and different clothes.


I thought it was a great event. 


I made a video to share the event with other people in the United States and the world.
