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 10:00 to 16:00 and happens on Fifth Avenue. This parade has no float or marching bands, but people walk in Easter themed outfits and wear Easter hats. The clothing ranges from fashionable outfits and animal costumes to civil war attire.

There are several events for hunting 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 attend a service at one of the churches in New York, many hold Easter ceremonies.
