Easter is only a few short weeks away, so now is the time to be making plans. Whether or not you celebrate the holiday, there are plenty of fun, spring activities taking place near Roosevelt Island this Easter weekend. Check out the events listed below that are happening near The Octagon.


Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival – This Easter Sunday, April 21, take in the sights of one of New York’s silliest traditions: The Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival. While you won’t see any floats in this parade, the bonnets on display will steal the show and will certainly make up for it! The parade marches north on Fifth Avenue starting at 49th Street up to 57th Street, kicking off at 10am.


Armani Easter Brunch – For an extra special Easter Sunday brunch, consider making reservations at Armani Ristorante, located in Midtown East on 5th Avenue. The contemporary Italian-American restaurant is offering a special prix-fixe menu complete with lamb, egg and seafood options. Reservations are required for dining in on Easter Sunday. If possible, request a window seat to see the Easter parade on Fifth Avenue from your table.


The Amazing Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt – If you always loved Easter egg hunts as a kid, then you’ll love this adults-only Easter egg hunt around NYC! Recruit your friends and solve clues to complete the hunt. The winning team will receive a cash prize! The egg hunt takes place on Easter Sunday, April 21 from 1:30pm – 5:30pm.
