Put a little spring in your step this week! There is no shortage of egg hunts and other Easter activities throughout the five boroughs, but you don’t have to leave North Brooklyn to find a fun activity to celebrate.
There are three local egg hunts taking place in the neighborhood. One is fun for the whole family, one is focused on school-age kids, and the third is geared toward younger children. Happy hunting!
Steve Wasterval’s Greenpoint Mini Painting Easter Egg Hunt
Local artist Steve Wasterval, famous for his mini paintings of Greenpoint, is bringing back his Greenpoint Mini Painting Easter Egg Hunt. The hunt for mini paintings in colorful Easter eggs starts Thursday, April 14, and continues throughout the weekend.
“There’s going to be a total of 10 minis, which means you’ll have 10 chances to find your very own piece of Greenpoint,” said Wasterval. If you’re not on Wasterval’s mini-hunt list, go to this link to get email alerts when each mini drops.
.As in past hunts, there will be decoy eggs without mini paintings planted throughout the neighborhood. Wasterval told Greenpointers that there will be more mini paintings hidden each day than in past hunts. One will be hidden on Thursday, two on Friday, three on Saturday and four paintings for the grand finale on Sunday. “Every morning, if they post a story showing how they prep for the hunt and tag me, I’ll give them a hint,” said Wasterval.
