Early spring in one of the most exciting cities in the world,
sees a street parade like no other...
It starts at Fifth Avenue and 47th Street...
Near St Patrick's Cathedral
and heads up to 57th...
Better known as New York's Easter Parade
Has been an annual tradition since the 1880s
Not far from the Rockefeller Centre
The parade dares you to wear your finest and funniest
Inviting butterflies and flowers that bloom in the spring
To fly high...
Lifting you Up...
It's where birds of a feather
most certainly flock together...
...and where beautiful girls in picture hats
Walk cheek by jowl with Dapper Dans and
Pooches dressed in diamantes and pearls!
But for some, the best part of the day is collecting treasures from the street
Whilst for others, it all proves too much!
Wishing you sweetness and light
and a Hoppy Easter!
