Easter on Parade!!

It's hard to believe that this Sunday, April 12, will be Easter Sunday! Time flies! It seems like we just had our first guests on last Halloween, and now here it is Easter! My Easter bunny collection and Easter egg tree are on full display at Maury Place! My mother was a collector of holiday decor--among other things--and I inherited her collections and her interest in decorating for every holiday! Of course, THE Richmond Easter event is Monument Avenue's Easter on Parade. Just steps out our front door, Monument Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic on Easter Sunday between Boulevard and Lee Circle so folks may stroll down The Avenue in their Easter finery. There will be many Easter bonnets (on humans and canines alike!!), and Monument Avenue's Easter Parade is certainly in my top ten events for people watching! We have been in New York City on Easter Sunday for that city's Easter promenade down Fifth Avenue, and I must say, it does not hold a candle to Richmond's own Easter event. If you have never been, it is a MUST for Richmonders and visitors alike!
