This will be the Hat Ladies' 8th Annual Easter Promenade. And they, "invite y'all to come on down and witness our elegant procession down the historic streets of Charleston in honor of hat-wearing traditions."

They'll also be wearing purple silk roses in memory of Emily Rose.

The group cautions that they are "NOT to be confused with The Red Hat Society, NOT to be confused with the Store for hats, hat, and NOT to be confused with any other hat groups based in Charleston."

Read more stories on this subject in our Easter topic page.This Easter Promenade will be from 11-11:30 a.m. on Meeting Street, starting at Broad Street and ending at South Battery Street. After that there will be an informal stroll down King Street.

Come down, look on, and develop a positive "hatitude."
