Easter Tradition - London

Of the numerous Easter parades in Britain, the one at London's Battersea Park is an event to watch out for.  The spectacular Easter Parade in Battersea Park is annually held on Easter Sunday.  The grand procession is sponsored by the London Tourist Board and is generally themed to a subject connected to the past of the metropolis, its' attractions or any of its' popular traditions  The event traditionally starts at 3 p.m. and consists of a plethora of beautifully decorated floats, entered by various organizations in and outside of London.  At the back end of the parade is a wonderfully decorated Jersey float, made from lovely spring glowers and bearing the Easter Princess and her attendants.  The procession is attended by thousands of men, children and women wearing bonnets.  This particular fashion of wearing bonnets by women during the Easter parade comes from the iconic fashion statement created in 1858 when Queen Victoria attended the Battersea Park procession dressed in a new spring bonnet and gown.  The tradition exists to this day and has expanded to such an extent that it is counted to be one of the inseparable English Easter traditions.
