28/4/17 The XIII edition of the Stroll with a Hat

It’s spring again! Looking forward for a walk with your best hat, feeling as if you were back in the Belle Époque? This Sunday is the day to do it! One more year, it’s time to celebrate the Stroll with a Hat in Rambla Catalunya –near Hotel Omm –wearing whatever you prefer: it can be extravagant or discreet, big or small, a classic design or a simple baseball cap… You can choose your favorite hat without hesitation, as long as it expresses your personality.

At Hotel Omm, your five stars hotel in Barcelona, we encourage you to participate and hit the streets with your best smile and your beloved hat. It is a special day to spread the culture and the style of one of the most visited cities in the world, an opportunity to get to know the happiness of its people and the unique personality of Rambla Catalonia, where the Stroll is celebrated from Diagonal to Gran Vía.

You can walk up and down this emblematic street in the centre of Barcelona, have a coffee at one of its terraces or stop to eat at one of Grupo Tragaluz’s restaurants in Paseo de la Concepción (Mordisco, Japanese or Tragaluz)… This year, the organization of the event has not fixed a specific route, so you can enjoy the parade at your own rythm, but don’t forget to bring your hat!

And we are talking about thirteen editions already. The Stroll with a Hat was born in 2005, inspired by the Easter Parade of New York, a cultural and traditional event that happens each Easter Sunday with people wearing their most original hats along Fifth Avenue.

Over the years, the Barcelona version of it, that was first started by two modistes, Nina Pawlowsky and Cristina de Prada, has achieved its own identity, becoming an inspiration for similar events from all over the world. Every new edition, the Stroll has won more and more popularity, reaching a record of participation last year with nearly two thousand people showing off their favorite hats.

At Hotel Omm, a luxury hotel in Paseo de Gracia, we do not want to miss such a celebration of happiness and style and, one more year, we cannot wait to wear our fancy hats. Do you want to join us? From noon to two in the afternoon, live the unforgettable experience of the Stroll with Hats in Rambla Catalunya.
