The Easter Parade started out as a chance for New Yorkers to show off their holiday finery afterchurch. It has evolved into a springtime version of Halloween.
Dianna Facci was wearing a hat made of a vintage lampshade on Sunday. It was covered with flowers,butterflies and a birdhouse.
Her sister Linda's creation was more austere: a papier-mache Easter egg worn at a rakish angle. Shesaid: "The yolk's on me!" The parade was immortalized in the 1948 movie "Easter Parade" starring JudyGarland and Fred Astaire.
