Easter activities

This year, Easter will take place on Sunday, April 16. It’s important to spend the day celebrating the holiday’s significance by spending quality time with family and friends. A great way to do this is by attending one of the many excellent Easter activities on Long Island.

Fun Easter Activities that You Won’t Want to Miss

Breakfast with the Easter Bunny

Great Neck’s Pump It Up, which is known for its giant inflatables, will be hosting one of this year’s premier Easter activities. On Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., stop by to enjoy a family-friendly breakfast with the real-life Easter bunny!

Breakfast with the Easter bunny will begin with a 70-minute egg hunt where kids will have to locate 6 Easter Eggs that are scattered throughout the huge arenas and gigantic inflatables. Once they find an egg, they can bring it to the Easter bunny and exchange it for candy.

After the egg hunt, the festivities will continue with a bagel breakfast and several fun craft projects. Each child will have a photo-op with the Easter bunny and leave with a free goody bag. Reserve your spot at this special event here.
