Whether or not spring fully arrived is debatable based on the cold weather we have been experiencing. However, one thing is certain, Easter is here! While we have different ways to celebrate this holiday The Bronx has an activity for you.
While it seems this borough is cutting down on the egg hunts, if you are looking for one this weekend check out H.O.P.E. at the Crib Inc. and G.I.V.E. Annual Easter Egg Hunt at El Batey de Doña Provi. As far as renditions of the Passion of Christ there is no shortage, with HERO The Musical at New Season Covenant Church and Passion Play 2013 at New Life Outreach International Church. All events Free!
If you are looking to engage in fun activities not directly related to Easter, you have many to chose from.
