Easter Egg Hunts
This Easter weekend, there’s more going on than you can shake a basket of pastel-dyed eggs at across Long Island. And if you can’t get enough of Easter egg hunting, we’ve got quite a few of them, starting with The Shoppes at East Wind out in Wading River.
On Saturday, The Shoppes are hosting an all-day Easter spectacular for the whole family. With a bouncy house, carousel rides, face painting, and a visit with the bunny, the fun goes 11 AM – 5 PM - and while the kids enjoy it all, you can enjoy special sales, deals, and samples at the shops. It’s all free (before the shopping, anyway), but don’t forget to bring some canned and non-perishable goods, because in the spirit of the season, there will be a food drive to benefit local families in need.
If you’re up for a drive down NY-25A to Huntington, get to the Cold Spring Harbor Aquarium. They’ve also got a Saturday Easter egg hunt – and you’ll not only find toys for the kids, but there may also be some treats to feed the fish as well.
