Pups parade on Easter day | thepupdiary.com

22 Apr

We got up bright and early on Easter Sunday and headed to Fifth Avenue for the annual New York City Easter parade. Many visitors and guests were expecting an actual parade with marching bands and flowering floats. In reality, people just gather along Fifth Avenue north of 49th Street and admire beautiful Easter bonnets and colorful outfits. Some folks seem to wear updated Halloween costumes. I guess that’s one way to reuse a costume! Our friend Dawn from Bespoke Canine made bright and cheery yellow outfits for us. We had fun posing for photos and strolling along the Avenue. The weather was perfect and everyone seemed to be happy! Spring has finally arrived in the urban jungle!

We were out and about Easter Sunday wearing our Sunday-best outfits.  Bill Cunningham from The New York Times was also out and about covering his On the Street photo diary of folks dressed up for the Fifth Avenue Easter parade.  He snapped a candid photo of Cubby as she walked along the Avenue with her pink ruffles bouncing in the wind.  A pretty in pink pup!

Doggies will dust off their bonnets and gowns and head to the New York City Easter parade Sunday morning, March 31 from 10 am to 4 pm.  People and pups gather on Fifth Avenue between 49th and 57th Streets to get a look at the beautiful and outrageous hats and costumes.  A real feast for the eyes!  The “parade” is more of a gathering than a marching procession.

We make a brief stop at the parade.  It tends to get a bit too crowded for us! We’ll check out some other options around town to celebrate the spring season.
