There are lots of Easter egg hunts around the city to bring the kiddies to this weekend, but here are four of the best:
On Friday, the 19th, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., the Tony Dapolito Recreation Center on Clarkson Street here in Greenwich Village will host
An Easter Eggs-perience. Aside from the egg quest, you'll find board games, egg designing workshops, and giveaways. And it's free!
On Saturday at 10:00 am, kids will be searching for eggs hidden on the first and second floors of the Engine 30 Firehouse in Soho, home of the New York City Fire Museum. A $15 admission fee will garner each child a bag for their haul, plus a chance to meet the FDNY's fire safety mascot, Hot Dog, and EMS's mascot Siren, two of the most beloved citizens of our city.
Chelsea Park will play host to pint-sized egg-seekers on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. with an Easter Bunny Extravaganza. Arts and crafts projects and sweet treats will accompany this no-cost egg hunt. Rumor has it that the giant hare himself may make an appearance!
Finally, one of the most popular go-to Easter events takes place both Saturday and Sunday at the Children's Museum of Manhattan. Not only will the little ones participate in a museum-wide Easter egg hunt, but they can learn unique ways to dye their eggs, weave their own Easter basket using recycled materials, and make funny bunny ears! ($14 museum admission.)
