2014 Garden City Easter Sunday Vintage Car Parade

by Roger on Apr.22, 2014, under Parade


The Empire Lambda Region attended the Garden City Easter Parade with 7 of our members in attendance. There was a tailgate breakfast with bagels and coffee that we enjoyed while our cars were lined up for the parade’s staging, which was an experience in and of itself as it was one interesting car after another, and you never knew what would be rolling into the staging lot next. Next to us was a real nice 1979 Pacer woody recently bought at Hershey.

There were an estimated 500 cars in the parade and many people were dressed in vintage clothing, Easter bonnets, and Easter bunny outfits.

The parade started promptly at 1pm and ran over two hours as the spectators cheered and a Dixieland band played along the route. Bunnies and chocolate were thrown from many of the cars to the kids during the parade. Even some “big kids” got some candy, though maybe at the expense of a few actual kids, who got knocked over as they were in the way. I will not provide the names to protect the guilty, YOU know who you are. :D

Chris’ mom was there with us as well, with her amazing Easter Bonnet which captured quite a bit of attention.

The Parade was a perfect activity to enjoy before heading to our Easter Sunday meals.
