Easter Egg Hunts in the City

Easter Egg Hunts in the City

November 07, 20231 min read

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.)
