Richmond Spotlight: Easter on Parade

Happy Monday Folks!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday and enjoyed the beautiful warm weather yesterday! My day was spent with family having brunch at our house and then strolling over to Monument Avenue for Easter on Parade. If you haven’t been before, contrary to the name, it’s not an actual parade in the traditional sense. There’s no marching band or floating snoopy balloon; instead the “parade” is made up of attendees in their Sunday best and crazy hats “parading” down Monument Avenue.

It’s the second year in a row we’ve spent Easter this way and it’s kind of become a tradition for us. Funnel cakes, porch parties, clowns and jugglers, local artisan booths, and dogs in bonnets; what better way to spend the holiday? And not to mention the people watching can’t be beat. Below are some pictures from this year’s event:

You know you’ve made it when your porch party has it’s own band.

Colorful and creative hats were everywhere you looked…

And these guys were basically just winning at life #friendgoals

Even the pups got into the festival spirit #sunglassgoals

And this little boy was the sweetest of them all! (i.e. my dog)

And of course the famous RVA Flower Lady. Wouldn’t be Easter on Parade without her!


How did you spend your Easter Sunday? Is there an event around town you enjoy going to with your family every year? Or perhaps you just spent it chowing down on some holiday ham? Either way comment below and let me know!
