If you’re traveling with the family this Easter, you are in luck. We’ve compiled the best family-fun Easter activities for you to try out in NYC!
Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival
Just a few blocks away from The Roosevelt you’ll find the Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival. This parade is less about floats and more about wild, festive costumes and hats! The event begins at 10:00 am, Easter Sunday, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Parade Route: Fifth Ave from 49th to 57th Sts.
Brunch AND skate with the Easter Bunny himself at this festive annual event. (You’ll need reservations for the brunch, make them at Stella 34 Trattoria – inside Macy’s Herald Square, available April 15 and 16 at 10am) In addition to skating and dining, there will also be face painting, balloon animals and Easter treats!
Town Square’s Spring Egg Hunt (McGolrick Easter Egg Hunt)
The day before Easter, head over to Brooklyn for a massive egg hunt, visits with the Easter Bunny and live music from your favorite DJs. Get your tickets ahead of time online.
Saturday you’ll want to make your way to the Upper West Side to take part in the Children’s Museum of Manhattan’s annual Easter fun! Scour the exhibits to find all the eggs on the scavenger hunt and then collect your prize!
