Everyone loves a parade.
The Easter parade is a cultural event, rich with tradition and history, consisting of a festive procession on Easter Sunday. It is usually an informal and unorganized occasion, with or without religious significance. Participants in an Easter parade usually dress in new and fashionable clothing. Ladies’ hats are encouraged. New York City is seen as the birthplace of the annual tradition.
Why not start this festive tradition in your neighborhood? This would be a fun way to celebrate spring and get everyone into a festive mood. Even the children could get in on the fun. You will need lots of art supplies, hats, artificial flowers, glue guns and party supplies. Plus it will be imperative to have a special self-storage unit to store it all until the big day. We have you covered on that one. Here are some ideas to ensure your Easter parade is memorable:
- Scour local consignment and thrift stores for hats! Have a special hat decorating party to get folks excited about the event. Use your glue gun to attached artificial flowers to unadorned hats. Make certain they reflect the personality of the wearer.
- Have a special children’s party, and help them make their own hats out of construction paper. March around the room with them and get the parade started! Also make Easter baskets out of berry baskets from your local grocery store. Plan to have an egg hunt at the end of the parade.
- Put together a refreshments committee to add some fun when the parade is over. Enjoy and start a list of items for next year!
