Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival, New York 2016

For the third year in a row I spend Easter Sunday on Fifth Avenue. This annual tradition has been taking place in New York City for over 100 years. This parade doesn't have any floats or marching bands. From around the world people come to New York City to participate. Outfits range from elegant to outrageous.   A 15th-century proverb from Poor Robin's Almanack, an English 17th and 18th-century satirical almanac series,  states that if on Easter Sunday some part of one's outfit is not new, one will not enjoy good luck during the year, "At Easter let your clothes be new, or else be sure you will it rue."
 Here in my old post  you can find some facts about the history of the parade and pictures of 2014.
 And here I published  2015 pictures .
And now enjoy the pictures of 2016!
