On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
I thought you might like to compare your fine hat/s to the ones I saw this past Sunday at the 5th Ave. Easter Bonnet parade. Which one is your favorite? (Mine isn’t even a hat. It’s the two dapper gentlemen in their Sunday finery. Very nice!)
This is 17 yo Screamy, who really enjoyed the parade and has already picked out his/her (sorry, forgot to ask) 2024 parade costume.

Very fun photos! As for a favorite, I’m going with the dog in pink sunglasses.
Wow. I did not know of this tradition. It looked like everybody was having a damn good time! Great pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Ceci n est pas mon nym
I knew the song, and I once heard an old Jack Benny radio show episode about it. But I just figured it was a quaint old thing that had died in the 1950s.
My Long Island mother in law was big on dressing our daughters in Easter bonnets, the traditional white ones.
These out the hats from Easter Parade (the movie) to shame
That outfit/hat on the woman in the first photo-just wow. But my favorite is the dog with the bunny & carrot hat-so cute. Looks like it was a fun time for all-thanks for sharing!
Some people have too much fun
My favorite? The dog sticking his tongue out at me.
Love the pics! What fun…

Late to the parade…
my favorite photo was of the gentlemen, on the left in pink tails and white top hat, and on the right the gentleman with a bright red top hat. So well turned out !!! Always appropriate for a fancy ball gathering !!
What a riot of color and creativity!
There’s plenty of people who love living in NYC, and these traditions are certainly part of why!
Thank you all!
So and fun to see all these happy photos.
