Originally a purely religious event, the New York City Easter Parade now draws people of all beliefs, most of whom attend the parade to see and be seen in the latest fashions. While many people continue to march in observance of the religious holiday, others enjoy satirizing the extravagant outfits of times past by dressing in gaudy costumes. With participants light-heartedly trying to outdo each other's costumes, the Easter Day Parade is something like a spring version of Halloween. One reveler in last year's parade went so far as to don a mesh hat filled with live birds!
