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.

The newly-formed Mountain Community Orchestra is growing fast. As expected, some sections of the orchestra are growing faster than others. Seats in the woodwinds and brass are pretty well filled but additional experienced string players are urgently needed.
