Easter on Parade returns to Monument Avenue between Allen and Davis this Sunday, April 8, from 1-5PM:
The beloved Richmond tradition that showcases attendees “parading” up and down scenic Monument Avenue continues this year on the blocks between Allen and Davis avenues. The event is produced by Venture Richmond.
Each year more than 25,000 people converge upon the four-block site to celebrate the arrival of spring and the beauty of Monument Avenue, taking this once-a-year opportunity to stroll in the streets. Music, arts, crafts, children’s activities, food, balloon artistry, a petting zoo, and of course, people and pet watching are all part of the celebration. This is a parade of all Richmonders to come out and participate!
The highlight of the event promises to be the ever-popular Pet Bonnet and People Bonnet Showcases, held at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., respectively, on the Zayde R. Dotts Main Stage at Allen Avenue. Roving entertainment includes Jonathan Austin, More or Less Morris Dancers, a stilt walker and Peggy the Clown.
