easter in philadelphia (part 2)

For the last 83 years Philadelphia Headhouse District has held an Annual Easter Promenade down south Street, ending in a huge celebration and best dressed categories contest. For the last several years the master of ceremonies has been Philadelphia's most famous party guru, Henri David. He always has surprises up his sleeve, and this year was no different. He's known for throwing some of the most extravagant Halloween Balls ever.

Master of ceremonies and local philanthropist, Henri David

Although it didn't win“ best pet” category, it was definitely different…
(FYI: a collie with rabbit ears and a backpack full of bunny rabbits actually won.)

The parade escorted by Philadelphia Police, marches all the way to Headhouse Square in historical Society Hill for the entertainment portion, and contests…

This little girl won for her age group - lace dress, lace socks and all…

This guy won for the men's category. He's won several times over the years.
