Easter in NYC is a celebration of spring, renewal and hope! As with all things to do in spring, one of the best ways to celebrate Easter is to spend time discovering the best things to do outside.

One of our favorite outdoor events is the annual Easter Bonnet Parade where marchers sport whimsical hats. Check out the annual event and grab some Easter brunch followed by leisurely day drinking at one of the city’s finest outdoor beer gardens.

In case the weather is lousy, there are plenty of indoor Easter events (and indoor egg hunts), too. But you can get your flower fix by visiting the New York Botanical Garden, which will showcase its annual Orchid Show.

For more ideas on how and where to celebrate, use our handy guide to plan the ultimate Easter weekend in New York equipped with pastel eggs, chocolate bunnies and more.
