Big hats, tall hats, little hats, small hats. All are welcome as the town of Dillsboro hosts its 25th annual Easter Hat Parade on Saturday, March 30.

The parade, a Dillsboro tradition the Saturday before Easter, begins at 2 p.m. and showcases a variety of interesting hats atop people - and pets - of all ages.

If you can't find a festive fedora, fear not. Hat-making takes place on the lawn of Dogwood Crafters.

Meanwhile, official hat judges award prizes in more than 20 categories, such as: biggest, smallest, funniest, most unusual, "poofy-est," most creative, most Easterlike, best-smelling, and most outrageous. Last year, approximately 250 entrants were in the contest.
