Easter Bunny Breakfasts, Photos, and More Fun for Westchester Kids

This post is being updated for 2020.

Just as Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to Santa, for many Westchester families, the same holds true for Easter and the Easter Bunny. While encounters are often possible at town egg hunts, there are many other opportunities to meet the bunny this spring.

Below we’ve rounded up 13 ways to say cheese with the rabbit. These include breakfasts, train rides, photo-ops for kids with special needs, and even the chance to go ice skating with the Easter Bunny. And more! Read on for the rundown and additional details.

Looking for more? Hop across the border to find out where you can dine with the Easter Bunny in Connecticut. And keep tabs on our Event Calendar for numerous other ways to celebrate Easter.
