Hop to It, Kids! The New Online Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday March 27, 4pm – 5:30pm
Online, hosted by Watson Adventures
$19.00 per person
Join Watson Adventures on a virtual Easter Egg Hunt! Chickens—or is it bunnies?—have laid eggs everywhere and it’s up to you to find them! They’re almost hidden in art museum paintings, in royal homes as Fabergé eggs, or in natural history museums as giant dinosaur eggs and tiny hummingbird eggs.
Our Host will meet with your teams on Zoom and send you hopping off around the world, following clues that lead you to websites where you must find eggs and answer fun questions about them. How many eggs can you find?
Foraging Tour of Forest Park with Wildman Steve Brill
Saturday March 27 11:45am – 3:34pm
The suggested donation is $20/adults, $10 for children under 12
Forest Park, Kew Gardens, Queens
This is one of the best places in the world for early spring foraging, with a wide selection of wild herbs, greens, roots, and even some cold-weather mushrooms. Habitats include miles of mature forest, as well as the trail edges, and the disturbed, overgrown, and cultivated habitats that provide homes for all sorts of diverse species.
Holi in Riverside Park
Saturday March 27, 2pm – 4pm
Riverside Park near Pier i Cafe, 500 W 70th S, New York, NY 10023
Celebrate the Hindu festival Holi in Riverside Park by flying kites. Holi is a Hindu festival of spring in India and is celebrated by people of all nationalities, backgrounds and religions. It is originally celebrated by throwing colors on each another to create equality and erase differences. Due to COVID we will be celebrating Holi by throwing colors in the sky with our kites!
The event is open to both adults and kids. Registered members will get a kite. We will also have some basic materials to make your own kite. And if you have your own kites, please bring them too! To add more to the festivities do come dressed in casual Indian clothes.

There’s no time to build a snowman! Join Elsa and Ana as they go north across the Enchanted Lands, into the unknown, in search for the truth of why she has her powers. We’ll strengthen our bodies and focus our minds as we have some true challenges ahead of us in the monstrous mountains. Let’s hope that our powers are strong enough to save the kingdom.
