Easter Egg Hunts

Don’t let the nice weather distract you from the fact that Easter is right around the corner! Therefore, what better way to celebrate the season than with a few good old-fashioned Easter egg hunts? Fortunately, across Long Island, there will be plenty of lawns scattered with pastel treasures for children to discover.

The Top Easter Egg Hunts in the Area

Easter Egg Hunt at Tully Park

This year, Edge City Church, located in the heart of New Hyde Park, is hosting an Easter egg hunt for all ages on Saturday, April 13 in Tully Park.

The event will begin with a round for children ages five and under at 11 a.m. Then, at noon, children aged six to 12 will be welcome to search for eggs. Keep in mind, a few of the eggs will contain a Golden Slip, which is good for two tickets to see “Avengers: Endgame” at Bow Tie Theater before it hits the big screen.

Besides the egg hunt itself, there will also be raffle prizes, face painting and plenty of fun Easter games for the whole family. If the weather doesn’t hold up, the rain date will be on April 20 at 11 a.m.

Barnyard Egg Hunt

Grab your baskets and head to the most celebrated egg hunt in the area, the Barnyard Egg Hunt. Taking place at Floral Park’s Queens County Farm Museum, this Easter egg hunt will feature searches throughout the day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Children on hand will also get a chance to meet and take pictures with Whiskers the Bunny. In addition to egg tossing and rolling, there will also be farm animals, hayrides and food vendors selling a wide variety of sweet treats.

Although the event is free for museum members, tickets are $10 for everyone else. However, prices go up on the day of the event, so click here to purchase tickets today.
