Whether or not you celebrate Easter, you’ll find great family activities this weekend for Westchester and Hudson Valley families. There lots of Easter egg hunts to fill up those baskets, as well as locomotive fun aboard the Easter Bunny Train. The most egg-citing thing about EGG-citement? Not messing up your own kitchen!
Not all weekend fun is eggy and bunny-ish. Tickets remain available to Disney Live!, the kind of experience that is likely to send your child’s jaw dropping at the sight of beloved characters on stage. For a lower-priced and lower-key performance, try a Magic Show.
As this weekend commences a week (or so) off from school, rely on our spring break guide for ways to optimize the time, and peruse our hot-off-the-press April GoList to plan the whole month.

For “old school” Easter fun, it’s hard to top the Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival that runs along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan—a tradition that dates back to the 1880s. Close your eyes and you can hear Judy Garland and Fred Astaire singing the Irving Berlin song. Donning your own chapeau is highly recommended, of course!
Watch in wonder as umbrellas take flight, balloons sprout minds of their own, and shimmering silks ripple to the rafters in the modern circus spectacle Air Play, which opens this weekend.
