After two long years in hibernation, South Street Headhouse District returned for its 89th Annual Easter Promenade on April 17. The family-friendly event, which annually draws thousands of families and people to South Street, delivered an afternoon of Easter-inspired fun for all who attended. Attendees dressed up in their Sunday best, got photos with the Mr. and Mrs. Cottontail, and grabbed delicious bites at some of South Street’s iconic restaurants

The Easter Promenade, known for the extravagant Easter costumes, was led by Henri David, the fantastical Master of Ceremonies, also known for his exuberance and particular skill in throwing the most magnificent parties. The promenade hosted contests for people of all ages who wanted to dress up for the occasion. Nearly 200 infants, children, families and pets entered the contest for categories such as Best Dressed Family, Best Dressed Pet, Best Bonnet, and Best South Street Razzle Dazzle and receive an Easter bag filled with delicious goodies, which were judged at the new Headhouse Plaza at 2nd and Lombard Streets.
