it doesn’t get nearly the amount of publicity and fanfare as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (probably because it has no corporate ties whatsoever), but the Easter Parade is an annual event in Manhattan. I know. It’s October, and no the Alzheimer’s has not fully kicked in yet. What brings this up is the continued sifting through the thousands of photographic slides of my grandfather’s. I’ve created many posts about this but trust me when I say thousands of slides, we’re talking THOUSANDS of slides.
Anyway, the focal point of the Easter Parade, of course, is the hats; bonnets if you will. Certainly nothing to compare to Kate and What’sHisName’s wedding, but it is a good way to spot existing fashion trends. Here are three shots from the 1967 Easter Parade…how snazzy everyone looked….even in the 60’s
