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! Due to the high vol­ume of inter­est in this event, the option­al pre-reg­is­tra­tion for the Egg Hunt is now closed. Please note that all par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Egg Hunt is on a first-come, first-served basis while sup­plies last. Gov­er­nors Island is expect­ing a large vol­ume of vis­i­tors for this event; please leave extra time when trav­el­ing on the fer­ry. We high­ly encour­age reserv­ing fer­ry tick­ets in advance.
