Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival 2013 (slide show)

At this annual millinery showcase, we saw headgear inspired by the Staten Island Ferry, the Empire State Building and even a scene from Les Misérables.

Dogs, kids and lots of hats were on display at the Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival 2013 (as were Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend—check out the video below). The eye-popping spectacle developed out of a 19th-century tradition, when well-heeled women showed off their Sunday best following church services.

We're particularly impressed with the two gussied-up Chihuahuas; by contrast, the pooches are looking decidedly unimpressed in the photo.
