Monument Ave. Easter Parade, Richmond
This is a local custom in Richmond every year around easter. The city blocks off about 8 blocks on the heart of monument avenue. This year I got a chance to go to the parade with Nat, which was a very exciting event. Nat and I enjoyed the festive easter customs, the petting zoo, and everyone out walking their cute little dogs. This is definetly an event for children, but adults can also enjoy themselves. There is alcohol and usually a live band. This year's band played classic rock and some good blue grass music. They had clowns on stilts and face painting for the children. There was also a wide variety of food available to the public. There were stands with chicken, hamburgers, steak and cheese subs and all the usual vendor food. The event on the whole last about 2 hours and was a complete blast. I would recommend that if you come to Richmond around Easter don't forget to stop by the Easter Parade.
