Easter is almost here, here are 5 places to go this weekend with the kids.

Time Is Running Out


It may seem like 2022 is flying by being that we are already halfway through April. With Easter coming up this Sunday, you are about to have your final few chances to take part in some fun Easter festivities. Luckily, living in Central New York, you have quite a few places to go to see Peter Cottontail and take part in Easter Egg Hunts.

#1: Head To New Hartford


It was a yearly tradition to head to Sangertown and see the Easter Bunny in New Hartford. Just like many things during the wave of the pandemic, it went absent for a few years. But the bunny is back.

The Easter Bunny will be there through April 16th and Sangertown prefers you to make a reservation. Click here to find out more.

#2: Ride Over To Mohawk

The location is the German Flatts town park in Mohawk. Be there from 11 am to 1 pm on April 16th for the kid's Easter Egg Hunt, but also get to meet the Easter Bunny too.
