This event has been postponed and a new date will be set in the near future.
Put on your fanciest bonnet or hat and join the Zonta Club of Bundaberg to support local young women in public affairs at its Easter Parade movie fundraiser.
Zonta Club of Bundaberg president Le-Anne Allan said Easter Parade was one of the most popular musicals from the golden age of Hollywood, and it was sure to delight young and old.
“There will be an Easter Parade in Bundaberg this April,” she said.
“School’s out on 31 March so why not grab your Easer bonnets, friends, family and children and come along and see a very special screening of one of the most popular and happiest musicals ever made, Easter Parade.
“Easter Parade is the 1938 American Technicolor musical film starring Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Peter Lawford and Ann Miller.”
Easter Parade fun for everyone
Le-Anne said the movie fundraiser would be fun for the whole family.
“There will also be prizes for the best Easter bonnet, along with a virtual Easter egg hunt,” she said.
“Plus, enjoy a glass of champagne and gourmet food pack.
“All profits from this event are going to support the good works of the Zonta Club of Bundaberg.”
Le-Anne said the tradition of the Easter parade began after the Civil War as a “fashion promenade” rooted in the custom of a Sunday walk following religious service.
“Wealthy New Yorkers would emerge from their respective houses of worship along Fifth Avenue to stroll down the street, dine at hotels nearby or pay social calls,” she said.
“Today the parade is celebrated around the world, and particularly in this classic Easter Parade movie.
“Young and old are invited to attend this fun movie event.
“The Easter Bunny will even make an appearance!
“Children are welcome and there will be special children’s Easter Hat Parade and great prizes – the children will just love creating their own hats.”
