There’s family fun aplenty – from one end of Brooklyn to the other — as Easter approaches.
State Senator Marty Golden is hosting two free Easter Egg Hunts this year. One will take place at Marine Park (Fillmore Avenue and Madison Place) from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, March 28. The other is at Shore Road Park (Shore Road and 79th Street) from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, April 4.
Both events will include prizes from Brooklyn Public Library as well as special egg baskets provided by the Brooklyn Nets.
