Easter Sunday’s best event takes place on beautiful Monument Avenue. Easter on Parade! Music, fun, food, bonnet contests for pets and their owners….but, it’s not a normal parade, the attendees walk up and down Monument Avenue while the bands and acts are fairly stationary along the route on festively decorated porches. The perfect base of operations for the weekend is one of our historic Richmond Inns! The festivities on Monument Avenue begin at 1:00 PM, bonnet contests at the Lee Monument begin at 3! Details!
