He may be a mythical creature who delivers sweets to kids, but the Easter Bunny's still gotta eat. Join him for brunch at Macy's celebration, which, in addition to breakfast, features balloon animals and face painting. Sat Mar 31 at 9am.
BEST Free bunny
Kids can burn off their sugar-fueled energy at Brooklyn Bridge Park's annual Spring Fling. Egg tosses and boat making keep children happy—as does an appearance from the Easter Bunny, who'll hop around during the event and take photos with kids. AudraRox makes an appearance too. Sat Mar 31 10:30am--1pm.
BEST Photo ops
Besides providing a stunning backdrop for pictures, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum hosts an Easter egg hunt. Kids search for colorful eggs in the formal garden—with some help from the Easter Bunny, of course. Sat Mar 31 10:30am--1pm.
BEST Bunny costume
You'll recognize Whiskers the Bunny—mascot of the Queens County Farm Museum's Barnyard Easter Egg Hunt—by his flashy pastel vest (it accentuates his twitchy pink nose). After meeting Whiskers, kids dance the bunny-hop and visit the animals that live on the farm. Sat Apr 7 noon--4pm.
