Philadelphia’s 87th Annual Easter Promenade Ready to Hop Down South Street

 

Hop on down to South Street Headhouse District for some FREE, egg-citing family fun during the 87th annual Easter Promenade on Sunday, April 1, 2018.  Come dressed in Sunday Best and promenade down South Street in this grand and popular tradition that is the region’s largest event on Easter Sunday. Master of ceremonies Henri David returns to lead the parade from the corner of Passyunk Avenue/South Street down to Headhouse Square (2nd Street) at 12:30pm. Enjoy Easter treats, live music from the Philadelphia Freedom Band, the Bunny Hop, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Cottontail and much more. Bring your camera and stick around to meet the Easter Bunny himself, and see who wins the best dressed contests! The parade itself kicks off at 12:30pm with judging until approximately 2:00pm.

Children and adults can enter to be crowned Best Dressed, Best South Street Razzle Dazzle or Best Easter Bonnet – even your pet can win big if he or she is looking spiffy! Celebrity judges will announce the winners in at least 12 categories. Past categories have included:
