Over the next two weeks, we will be telling you about a lot of Easter activities that will be happening around the Hudson Valley. Each community is bound to have some sort of fun planned in the days leading up to the arrival of the Easter Bunny. Fortunately, this year we will be able to get out again and enjoy a good Easter Egg Hunt.

One Hudson Valley community has planned two separate events that you can do to celebrate the arrival of the easter bunny. Both will be fun for kids to participate in and easy for parents to enjoy too. The Town of New Paltz Youth program along with the New Paltz Police department has organized some Easter time fun.

Town of New Paltz Plans Two Easter Events

It is your choice to do both or just one. Whatever your little bunnies are up for this year. You can enjoy an Easter Stone Scavenger Hunt at Hasbrouck park and an Easter egg hunt at Huguenot Street. All of these events are sponsored by Shoprite, The New Paltz Office of Community Wellness, The New Paltz Fire Department and Rescue Squad.

From Halloween to Easter some of our favorite candy brands get reworked for each of the holidays. Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day and finally Easter. From September to April we can eat candy to our hearts content. But have you ever realized that after Easter there are no more candy focused holidays until Halloween comes around again.
