Looking for the best things to do in New York City this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for Easter weekend.

Dinosaurs are marauding once again in the Bronx, after taking a two-year sabbatical, and kids can catch up with their favorite critters on the Bronx Zoo's walk-through trail. The Prospect Park carousel is twirling again, there's a new Eric Carle exhibit at the Seaport, and Jackie Robinson Family Day promises baseball clinics and an evening screening of 42 in Harlem.

Roller skating is all the rage at the TWA Hotel in Queens and at Rockefeller Center. And yes, you can put all your eggs in one basket when Easter arrives Sunday, with egg hunts galore and the always amazing Easter Parade down Fifth Avenue.

Our Family Activity Calendar is always hopping, plus we've found 50 awesome things to do during next week's spring break.
