Thousands turn out for Easter on Parade

RICHMOND,VA (WWBT) - A big crowd came out Sunday for Richmond's annual Easter on Parade.

There was good music, food and lots of fun and games.

Monument Avenue between Allen and Davis were blocked off so thousands of people could have a good time.

Parade goer James Muse says this year's festival will not be his last, "it's a nice thing going on here, bringing the family and kids out too. It'll become a new tradition for us."

One of the highlights of the parade is the bonnet contest.
