The Easter bonnet is still a staple of the holiday, as folks who celebrate all across our region prepare to get dressed up in their Easter best this Sunday.

At Goorin Brothers in Rittenhouse Square, dapper dons and lovely ladies are picking up custom headwear.

The family business has been around since 1895, when a man named Cassel Goorin sold hats out of a horse-drawn cart on the streets of Pittsburgh.

On Friday, folks were busy putting the touches on their Easter attire with all kinds of gorgeous toppers.

And just a little fun fact for you: The tradition of wearing a fancy bonnet at Easter is said to represent something new, for both renewal in the religious sense of the holiday and a new season - spring.
