Grab your Easter Bonnet or bunny ears, it’s almost time for San Francisco’s 22nd annual Spring Celebration and Easter Parade (April 5, 2015). The events features an Easter Bonnet Contest (“creativity encouraged”), and some of Union Street’s best restaurants serving seasonal fare in an outdoor bistro setting.

Categories include Best in Show, Best Couple, Best Family, Best Pet, Best Children, Best Merchant, Most Elegant, Largest Hat, Most Comical, and Most Creative.
