Best New York events and traditions for a Happy Easter


If you and your family are looking for fun Easter festivities, you're in luck. New York City has a wide range of events, from parades to egg hunts. Here are a few of the city's best options.

Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival

This parade is an annual NYC staple. It began in the 1800's as a way for high-society ladies to show off their Easter finest. Now the parade welcomes anyone wearing a hat. New Yorkers don their favorite millinery creations, which range from the outlandish to the classic. Get your family together, wear your Easter bonnets, and take part in this delightful Easter tradition. It begins at 10 a.m. at St. Patrick's Cathedral.


Barnyard Egg Hunt at Queens Country Farm Museum

This egg hunt is a great way for kids to celebrate the holiday. The event offers an array of activities, including an orchard egg hunt, an egg-tossing tournament, and egg rolling games. Kids can also visit the farm animals and catch sight of Whiskers the Bunny. Families can grab a bite to eat at one of the many food vendors that set up shop at the farm for the Easter festivities. The event takes place on April 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and advance tickets are required.
