Timeshare Vacation – New York City’s Quintessential Easter Parade

published on March 27, 2013 by .

Many large cities and small towns hold Easter parades around the world. But if you’re looking for the ultimate Easter Parade experience – plan a timeshare Easter vacation to New York City.

On Easter Sunday, (March 31, 2013) you have the opportunity to see Easter bonnets to the extreme as “paraders” wander along Fifth Avenue from 49th to 57th Streets. The area around St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the ideal place to see the parade.

Now more formally known as the Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival, this parade is not a formally organized event. From 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. the area along Fifth Avenue from 49th to 57th Streets is closed to vehicular traffic, and folks wander the street admiring various Easter Bonnets and Easter outfits.

While this parade doesn’t have any floats or marching bands, it is a spectacle nonetheless. From around the world people come to New York City to participate. Outfits range from elegant to outrageous. Anything and everything that can be made into an Easter hat – is.

After you’ve enjoyed Easter church services, perhaps at New York City’s most famous church, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which first opened in 1879 and welcomes over 5 million visitors each year, you can have fun stopping by 5th Avenue the during the festivities.

Then head out to experience other Easter activities in this fascinating city, such as:

1. Easter Egg Events at The Children’s Museum of Manhattan. Celebrate Easter at CMOM with an Easter egg scavenger hunt and Easter egg themed crafts.

2. Visit Peter Rabbit at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Hear about the magical world of Peter Rabbit and his friends in Mr. McGregor’s Garden during lively book readings. Enjoy fun family crafts, and have your pictures taken with Mr. Rabbit himself!

3. Easter Weekend Greenwich Village History and Dessert Tour. Break a Lenten fast with a tour of sites associated with the history and personalities of the Village, from George Washington to Bob Dylan, with dessert stops in between where you’ll take in Lilac chocolate, saviodi cookies and more.

An Easter timeshare vacation can be budget-friendly with New York City timeshare rentals that start at just $143/night.
