Atlantic City Boardwalk East Parade 1964

When I was stationed in Lakehuist, New Jersey, one Spring Sunday Morning we were wondering how we were going to entertain ourselves that pretty day.  One of us (not me) said, “I know!  Lets go to Atlantic City to the Easter Parade!”

I never heard of such.  But apparently it was well known tradition.
Atlantic City Boardwalk was only about 40 miles away.

I’m glad somebody thought of that.  Real people dressed up in their finest putting on a strutting show.  It was a sight to behold.  We as gawkers loved the parade and so did the gawkees.

We did not take pictures that I remember but to give you an idea of the dress think of Kentucky Derby fashion and Pimps.
