"After two long years in hibernation, South Street Headhouse District (SSHD) returned for its 89th Annual Easter Promenade on April 17,and was a huge success.

This family-friendly event, which annually draws thousands of families and people to South Street, promised an afternoon of Easter-inspired fun for all who attend, and it delivered.

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, who is 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.

All contestants received an Easter bag with delicious goodies thanks to Frankford Candy.

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.

The promenade ended at the new Headhouse Plaza (2nd and Lombard Streets) for the contest judging."
