Here comes Peter Cottontail, Philly.

This Sunday, April 5 — Easter Sunday — the South Street Headhouse District celebrates the holiday with its 84th annual Easter Promenade, a full day of free family-friendly fun.

The festivities get hopping at 12:30 p.m. and kids, moms, dads, pets and all are encouraged to dress in their Easter finest to join a parade down South Street from Passyunk Avenue to the 2nd Street Plaza at Headhouse Square on South Street.

Following the parade, prizes will be awarded to the best-dressed guests in 12 categories, broken up by age group and gender.

Anyone dressed up can enter to take top honors in categories including the best-dressed woman over the age of 20, best-dressed boy from ages two to five and even the best-dressed pet.

During the afternoon soiree, festivalgoers can look forward to live music from the Philadelphia Freedom Band, a bunny hop, seasonal treats, photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny and more.

The festivities are slated to last until around 2 p.m.

After the Easter Promenade, it’s a good idea to head out for Easter brunch at a number of neighborhood restaurants offering up holiday specials, including quite a few in the South Street Headhouse District like Ela, Bridget Foy’s and the Twisted Tail.
