Fashion and Fun on Display at NYC Easter Parade

Top hats with bunny ears and elaborate costumes were on display Sunday in New York City's Easter Parade.

The annual event that meanders along Manhattan's Fifth Avenue every Easter Sunday is actually more of a procession than an actual parade.

It started in the 1880s as a strolling display from people wearing their finery outside Fifth Avenue churches. It's morphed into an annual expression of the creative and sometimes zany.

Hats in an assortment of colors were bedecked with flowers. Even the animals got into it, with at least one dog wearing its own pastel-colored outfit.
