In Midtown West, kids can experience a “frozen” Easter egg hunt while developing a taste for overpriced drinks (sans alcohol). Each participant will receive a complimentary “mocktail” before beginning his or her egg quest across the icy terrain of the Minus5 Ice Experience in the lobby of the New York Hilton. Nothing says “He has risen” like mocktails and arctic tundra!

Riverside Park

At Think ‘N’ Fun’s annual Easter egg hunt in Riverside Park there’s no BYOB or mocktails, BUT participants are gifted with a basket and free bunny ears to help get into the holiday spirit, spirits or no. The Easter Bunny will also be onsite to kick off the egg hunting festivities and strike a pose with kiddos.
