Easter Bunny Pictures, Egg Hunts, and More Seasonal Fun for Westchester Kids in 2021
With Easter around the corner, it’s time to fill those baskets and schedule your annual Easter Bunny pictures, egg hunts, and meet and greets with everyone's favorite springtime celebrity. We’ve gotten ahold of his social calendar and rounded up opportunities for bunny encounters and other Easter fun for families in Westchester and the Hudson Valley.
From photo-ops to egg hunts and even a train ride, here's where you can see the Easter Bunny. We recommend you hop to it, though, as limited capacity and pre-registration is required for many of these fun encounters.
We've got plenty more Easter fun in our Spring Fun Guide, which has some fun at-home activities like these Easter crafts and egg dyeing ideas and 30+ ways to elevate egg hunts at home. We've also rounded up our top things to do in March, and our Event Calendar gets constant updates, too.
Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
