Join us for the first-ever public egg hunt on Governors Island this spring! 10,000 wooden painted eggs will be hidden throughout the Island’s 120 acres of open space, with Island-specific prizes and giveaways for the most hard-boiled egg hunters.
This new event includes several levels of egg hunts tailored to specific age groups, along with an Island-wide scavenger hunt that everyone can take a crack at. The day-long celebration at the Parade Ground will also include performances from Wonderspark Puppets, Brooklyn Magic Shop, and more to be announced. Spring-themed arts and crafts will be featured all day, and food will be available for purchase onsite from Governors Island vendors along with a beer garden from Governors Island Beer Co. Visitors will also get to enjoy a Spring Bunny photo op and the hijinx of Looney Tooney the Clown.
The Governors Island Egg Hunt is free for all participants…no need to shell out big bucks for a day of eggs-cellent family-friendly free-range fun! Pre-registration is recommended for the kids egg hunts, scroll down to register. No registration necessary for adults.
