    Easter Eggstravaganza in Central Park

  • Easter Egg Hunt
    It typically took place on the Saturday before Easter, from 11:00am to 1:00pm as a free event.

    Takes place in the Lower 40 Acres, from Bethesda fountain south. Enter at 72nd street on either side of the park.

    The 56th Easter Eggstravaganza, entirely free, is older than their parents are, and with each year the festivities breed and multiply. This year there'll be the city's largest egg hunt and an egg roll race who can spoon their wooden egg across the lawn the fastest? Kids will build their own Easter baskets at the Jelly Belly Build Your Own Basket venue, and their parents can fill them with fresh produce from the greenmarket.

    There'll be plenty of bunnies at the petting zoo and walkabout characters to be petted too. With so much ground to cover, families may want to borrow rollerblades for free. They can skate over to the puppet show and face painting, or check out performances at the bandshell by Broadway and children's theatre artists.
