Hundreds will travel down Frankfort Avenue to Pope Street. Many of the units will be tossing candy to the crowd lining the route. This year's grand marshal is Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. Judges will determine the winners of the "Good Ears" awards for the most creative floats and participants.
A kids' hat making table will be in front of the library before the parade from 10-11 a.m. The kids can walk in the parade and be in the contest at the end of it. Pets Pictures with the Easter Bunny are from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. at Pet Wants, located at 1718 Frankfort Avenue.
Make sure you wear your best Easter bonnet. FABA will hold the first "Top It Off" bonnet contest. Judges will award prizes in the 12-and-under category as well as for the best traditional, most Derby-ready, and most outrageous Easter bonnets.
Winners will take home unique prizes from local Frankfort Avenue merchants. Contests begin at 1:30 pm following the parade, at Frankfort Avenue and Pope Streets.
