This year's Easter Promenade (the 85th but who's counting?) drew large numbers of enthusiasts with organizers running out of bunny ears after giving away 1,100 pairs, said Kory Aversa, a spokesman for the South Street Headhouse District, the event's sponsor. Last year, about 400 pairs were given out.
Sunday's event began with a short but sweet parade along South Street, with Henri David, Councilman Squilla, and Mayor Kenney leading the way. Parade music was supplied by the Philadelphia Freedom Band, which bills itself as the city's only LGBT marching band.
