Family Friendly: The Easter Bunny come for a visit
Kids can visit with the Easter Bunny before participating in an egg hunt.
The pancakes, sausages, orange juice and milk will be ready from 7 a.m. to noon at Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, Saturday, March 23 as the Westchester Park District Community Center, 10201 Bond St. The Bunny is a late sleeper, though, so if your kids want to visit and pose for photos with him, plan to drop in later.
“Between 8:30 and 11:30 (a.m.), the Easter Bunny will be there,” Community Center Director Lianne Robinette said. “We have a roving magician. He’s really good with children but he also entertains the adults. And we have a balloon artist and face painting.”
At noon, kids age 2-10 can head outside for an egg hunt. There will be more than 2,000 toy-filled plastic eggs ready for the hunters.
The cost is $6 per adult, $4 for kids 3-12 years old and free for ages 2 and younger. Tickets are $1 less at the door between 7 and 8:30 a.m.
