Gray skies on Easter Sunday couldn't dampen festive spirits at the 36th annual Bunnies on the Bayou outdoor party at Wortham Center's Fish Plaza.
The Houston event, which started with a small group of gay friends in a Montrose apartment complex on Easter Sunday, 1979, has grown into a Guinness Book of World Records-worthy cocktail party and major charity fundraiser that draws revelers from across the nation.
Bunnies in all shapes and sizes gathered to celebrate, with all proceeds going to a host of GLBT organizations.
Again this year, photographer Dalton DeHart captured the hoppy spirit of the occasion.
