For kids this weekend, the Easter basket runneth over, with holiday fun and egg hunts aplenty tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday.
The Easter Bunny will make a stop at Agawam Park in Southampton tomorrow at 10 a.m. for the Police Benevolent Association’s hunt. In case of rain, kids will assemble at the park on Saturday at the same time.
Things really get hopping on Saturday. At 10 a.m. there are dueling Easter egg hunts, with the East Hampton Town Democratic Committee hosting one at Herrick Park on Newtown Lane and another at the Maidstone Gun Club in Wainscott.
The Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church will hold an egg hunt at 11 a.m. sharp, rain or shine. Coffee, juice, and snacks will be served. Donations of candy or toy-filled eggs in advance of the event will be welcomed and can be dropped off at the church office.
An ambitious egg sleuth could then head over to Amagansett Square, where from noon to 2 p.m. there will be face painting, egg decorating, bunny games, and an egg hunt. The Youth Park, nearby on Abraham’s Path, is another option. An egg hunt goes down at noon. Parents of kids who plan to take part have been asked to drop off a dozen plastic eggs and a bag of individually wrapped, non-peanut candy in advance.
Or, in Sag Harbor at the same time, the Sag Harbor Garden Center will host a free petting zoo with animals from Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Suffolk County Farm. The village’s annual Easter Bonnet Parade, sponsored by the chamber of commerce, takes off from near the Laundromat on Main Street at 1 p.m. Participants have been encouraged to wear an inventive Easter topper of their own creation. There will be prizes for the best hats, courtesy of the Sag Harbor Variety Store.
Easter Sunday brings the Sag Harbor Lions Club’s egg hunt at Mashashimuet Park. Festivities begin at 12:30 p.m., and the hunt will be at 1. The club scatters thousands of eggs in the park, all filled with candy and prizes, and there are pony rides until 2 p.m.
Also starting at 1 p.m. Sunday is the Southampton Trails Preservation Society’s egg hunt for kids 8 and under. It will be held at Poxabogue Park, south of the railroad trestle on Old Farm Road in Sagaponack.
