Easter Egg Hunts for Long Island Kids & Families 2015

Easter Egg Hunts and Events on Long Island

Easter will be here soon, and the Easter Bunny will be busy hopping through Long Island hiding thousands of colorful, treat-filled eggs. We've rounded up egg hunts and bunny visits in some of our favorite spots. We're glad to see so many venues have scheduled hunts by age to give both little kids and big kids a fair shot at filling their baskets. Remember to bring a basket (or a bag) for the kids to use to hold their collected treasures and pack your camera for Easter Bunny photo-ops. (If there's the threat of rain, be sure to give a call first.) And for more kid-friendly fun, be sure to check out our Long Island Events Calendar.
