If it's Easter Sunday, there must be hats.
The annual Easter Parade turned Manhattan's Fifth Avenue into a spectacle.
Some people wore elaborate, outlandish hats with flowers and feathers. Others made it a whole look, adding clothes and costumes. And of course, there were pets in festive wear as well.
The event, more of a promenade than a parade, is a take on a New York City tradition that dates back to the late 1800s. In those days, the city's richer residents would wear their best clothes and walk along after attending church services.
Judy Garland and Fred Astaire made the procession well-known in the movie, "Easter Parade."
