Judy Garland & Fred Astaire in Easter Parade
I am the only one who remembers Easter hat parades at school? In my first few years at primary school my best friend and my mum worked wonders. No paper hats for us. She came dressed as a frill necked lizard…and I went with another friend as Snugglepot & Cuddlepie – the gumnut babies (from an Australian series of childrens books by May Gibbs. It was full on costume for us. If only I could find the photos.
I wish there were still grown up Easter parades. I am always looking for an added excuse to don a fabulous hat.
