Every once in a while we get a moment when all the world needs us to do is just stand there and sparkle.

Saturday March 31, 2018 was that moment

1 by 1, 2 by 2, 3 by 3, 4 by 4...The Hat Ladies, their gents, children, and dogs continue a 100+ year tradition, meet and greet in Washington Park, then stroll our historic Broad Street, wishing everyone a "HaTpy Easter!" in our 17th Easter Promenade

The Band warms up in Washington Park

Then moves onto Broad to announce "The Hat Ladies are coming!


First we meet...

...and greet one another

And put our hats together...

...for the good time aHEAD


Next we "force" ourselves to pose for pictures...

Top Hat, Archie Burkel

And her Top Man, John Burkel
