Fancy Hats on Parade

Less of a parade and more of a “finally, it’s spring” festival, the annual Easter on Parade takes place on Monument Avenue, blocked off between Davis and Allen. Music, food trucks and dogs wearing bonnets so festive even your great-grandmother would be jealous. Best of all, it’s free. April 16, 1-5 p.m. venturerichmond.com.
