Sunday - Easter Hats

Instead of sharing a knitted hat pattern today, I'm celebrating Easter by sharing a Richmond, Virginia tradition with you.

Richmond, VA Easter hats
The Monument Ave. Easter Parade.  It's a huge tradition in Richmond.   The streets surrounding Robert E. Lee's statue are blocked off and there's a huge, giant block party complete with beer, bands, a parade, and a hat contest.

Everyone participates.  Young and old,

People and pets.

Everyone dresses for the occasion.

Even the plastic pink flamingos take part.
