No frills on these bonnets

The Easter Parade in New York takes place along 5th Avenue. Not a parade in the sense of unidirectional marching people, the section of street is closed to vehicular traffic so people can parade around in their Easter bonnets. This tradition of parading around a mall to display Easter bonnets originated from the elite who were attending services along 5th Avenue. Now it has become a spectacle for all people to behold and take part.

Here are some of the sights from this year’s parade:

Parked in front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral were two demonstrators speaking on the inequalities of homosexuals and the recent handling of sex abuse within the church.
