Hop Along 

Last year, a cold wind and an obstinate tuba player kept the Hyde Park Easter Parade from happening outdoors. This year, Rev. Roger Coleman promises that the Loose Cannon Brass Band will march two blocks from Hyde Park (36th Street and Gillham) to Pilgrim Chapel (38th Street and Gillham), no matter what Mother Nature's up to. "If we get any more complaints, we'll get another tuba player," he says.The parade starts at 10:30 this morning. Coleman says it's "like a New Orleans jazz funeral that comes through." The music continues during an 11 a.m. traditional Easter service at Pilgrim Chapel. And the festivities proceed with the Easter Frolic at Hyde Park from noon to 2:30 p.m., including an egg hunt for kids and what Coleman hopes will be the world's largest bunny hop for children. For those who can't picture the bunny-hop dance, Coleman explains: "It's a little dance where you go backwards and forwards and you jump around."
