For the 25th year in a row, Dillsboro hosted its annual Easter Hat Parade last Saturday.
The parade, a Dillsboro tradition taking place each year on the Saturday before Easter, put a variety of decorated hats atop people and pets alike on parade.
Guests flocked to Dillsboro to showcase their wild and wacky festive spring headgear, and just in case you couldn't find one to your liking, a hat station was set up to create one on the spot.
The parade was the main event and was preceded by face painting, egg hunting, a visit to the train for the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad and even the Easter Bunny himself.
