5 Long Island Events This Weekend That You Don’t Want to Miss

Easter is a great time to get out and enjoy the springtime with your family and friends. There are so many events going on in the area for you to attend, and it’d be a huge shame if you missed out on some weekend fun because you didn’t know about it! That’s why we decided to pull together a list of Long Island Events this weekend and throughout the Easter season.

Bayville Adventure Park First Annual Easter Event

Who doesn’t love the Bayville Adventure Park and their festive events that run throughout the year? The answer is no one, of course. This year, they’re hosting their first Easter Eggstravaganza, which started last weekend and will continue this weekend (April 18-20) from noon to 5pm. There will be Easter egg hunts at noon and 3pm, and children will get bags to collect their eggs in, and can redeem them for candy and prizes at the end. There’s also a Golden Egg to find, which contains a special prize! The Bayville Adventure Park is open for Easter Spring Break from April 11-22 from 11am to 10pm every day.

Story Time Easter Egg Hunt at the Lakeview Library

If you’re looking for Long Island events today, grab the kids and head over to the Lakeview Library in Rockville Centre. Kids in grades K-6 are invited to search the library for hidden Easter eggs tonight (4/17) from 6-7pm. Kids 2-7 aren’t out of luck—there’s an entirely separate event for them on Friday morning from 10:30-11:30, where they’ll get to listen to stories and do some crafts, then hunt for eggs! The Lakeview Library requests that parents register for these events in advance by calling (516) 536-3071 or visiting the library.

Eggstravaganza at Baldwin Park

If your kids are crafty, you’ll certainly want to get down to Baldwin Park this weekend. From 9:30-10:30am and 11:30-12:30pm, kids from 5-12 are welcome to join the fun in the park, where recreation instructors will gather to guide the children through a number of creative projects. The event is free to attend, but parents are asked to call (516) 546-4481 to register. This Spring Program meets on Saturdays, and will run until May 31.

Egg Hunt at Eisenhower Park

If you’re looking for even more fun things to do in Long Island this weekend, check out the Egg Hunt in Eisenhower Park! Festivities start at 8:30am on Saturday (4/19). In addition to the Egg Hunt, there’ll be bouncy rides, a magician, face painters, live entertainment, and you can even have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny! There will be a whole variety of food and beverages, as well as activities for people of all ages. The Egg Hunt will start at 11:15am for kids 4 and under, kids 5-8 will join in at 11:30, and kids 9+ will follow suit at 11:45am. You don’t have to do anything to register in advance, just show up, and it’s free! Registration begins on-site at 8:30am!

59th Annual Vintage Car Parade in Garden City

On Easter Sunday (4/20), everyone’s favorite Vintage Car Parade will begin rolling through Garden City at 1pm. It begins in Parking Field 9E at 10th Street and Franklin Avenue, and continues south on Franklin to 7th Street. The parade comes to a close at Hilton Avenue. Assembly for the event begins at 10am, and spectators are welcome to come early and enjoy all of the festivities before the parade begins.

This Easter Weekend is sure to be a blast at any of the great events on Long Island this weekend—whatever you decide to do, snap a few pictures to share with us on Facebook at All Island Transportation!
