Bring on the egg hunts and bunny appearances! It's Easter weekend, and celebratory events are taking place throughout the state on Saturday and Sunday. Grab your baskets and gather oodles of eggs at local parks and farms, as well as at amusement park festivities like Storybook Land's Easter Egg Hunt and Diggerland's Easter Egg Hunt, and at nature center celebrations such as Tenafly Nature Center's Camouflaged Egg Hunt and Pyramid Mountain's Animal Egg Hunt. You can also ride the rails with the Easter Bunny this weekend, or catch him at a bunny brunch.

This weekend also marks the season opening of Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari, and Elmo and the gang take the stage in New Brunswick in Sesame Street Live! Let's Party!.
