This is a big week. I know because not only are my kids home from school. but parking (street cleaning) regulations are suspended from today through Friday, 22 April for observance of Passover, Holy Thursday and Good Friday, then again on the following Monday and Tuesday, 25 and 26 April for observance of Passover again. And, of course, Sunday is Easter, so here’s a few egg hunts in the hood if you want to bring the kiddies, courtesy of A Child Grows in Brooklyn. We also included Brooklyn Bridge Park’s free Spring Fling in the list (not actually an egg hunt).
Spring Egg Hunt at Pierrepont Playground- Saturday, April 23rd: 10 am SHARP
Candy, treats, bake sale, face painters, balloons and good friends have made this an annual tradition for many families!
