Family Friendly Easter events in NYC

With so many Easter events here on Long Island, why would we travel all the way into NYC?

Well, there are three awesome events that can only happen in NYC like Skating with the Easter Bunny at The Rink at Rockefeller Center, looking for eggs during a frozen Easter egg hunt or having a magical Easter Brunch with views of the Empire State building and we have all the details for you.

2. Frozen Easter Egg Hunt at Minus5 NYC

Minus5 Ice Experience, located inside the New York Hilton Midtown, will host its fourth annual Frozen Easter Egg Hunt at the coolest lounge in Manhattan. Minus5 Ice Experience is the premium ice attraction where everything inside the bar is made of ice: the walls, the bar, the seats and even the glasses holding signature refreshments.

Starting on Friday, April 14 (through Sunday, April 16), families are invited to celebrate this fun-filled holiday with an icy spin on the traditional Easter celebration. All kids (ages 14 and younger) will receive a complimentary frozen refreshment with entry and are invited to take part in NYC’s only Frozen Easter Egg Hunt featuring custom Easter eggs and goldfish frozen throughout the winter wonderland for guests to find. Those who find all eggs and goldfish will be gifted a treat basket, courtesy of Minus5.
