What can you do at Easter in New York?
Easter “egg hunt” events are organised in various places. It is great to participate, especially if you have children. I would also definitely suggest going out for a nice Easter brunch.
There is also an Easter parade, this parade lasts from 10 am to 4 pm and happens on Fifth Avenue. This parade has no float or marching bands, but people walk in Easter outfits and wear Easter hats. The outfits range from fashionable outfits, animal suits to civil war attire.
There are several events for finding and painting Easter eggs, for example in the Brooklyn Children’s Museum and the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. At Trinity Church there is an Easter Fun Fest. You can also visit one of the churches in New York, many churches hold Easter ceremonies.
