11 a.m. — Easter Bonnet Promenade begins
2 p.m. — Spring Ball begins in Stanford Gallery (111 I Street)
Women tend to get all dolled up in fanciful dresses, lovely parasols or colorful hats while attire for the gentlemen might include top hats, frock coats, vests, and trousers with a walking stick and watch fob (pocket watch) to complete the distinguished look. “Promenading” guests are also invited to enjoy a special Spring Ball featuring 19th century ballroom and period music. And for those interested in learning some fancy footwork, talented dance instructors will demonstrate and teach various period dances that include ballroom and contra dance. Don’t miss the spirited and free Easter celebration!
