The Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival once again took over Fifth Avenue outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral today as creative New Yorkers showed off their most innovative and elaborately-constructed headwear. The tradition dates back to the mid-1800s, when high-society ladies would promenade in their Easter finery after church. Now, it’s evolved into a showcase of some of the most creative millinery you’ll see all year. Check out photos of the annual event below.
