The Parade Marches On
Some parades, which used to be mainly religious celebrations, are now put on for everyone. In New York City, the Easter Parade takes place up and down Fifth Avenue. Traditionally, this is when all the women would first wear their Easter bonnets.

Another very popular parade in New York is the Thanksgiving Day Parade, which includes floats of everything from a gigantic turkey, to Snoopy to Bart Simpson. New York City is just one of many cities to hold big holiday parades. Small-town parades can also be fun because everyone can participate. Have you ever been in a parade?
