Easter Egg Hunts for Westchester Kids

Easter egg hunts in Westchester

Once a year in early spring, there is a special kind of magic in the air that allows fluffy little bunnies to lay eggs filled with candy and toys—or so the stories go. Get your child out there to take advantage of this annual phenomenon by attending one of the many Easter egg hunts taking place throughout Westchester. And the biggest treat for parents is that many of them are FREE.

If you're looking for other activities, check out our Event Calendar, which is filled with seasonal fun for children of all ages. While you're out enjoying the spring air, consider a short hike or a stop at one of the county's many nature centers. Maybe someone there can better explain the rabbit-egg-lying process.

Looking for even more spring activities with preschoolers? We have plenty.
