Hop on down to East Passyunk Avenue for a day of ‘egg-citing’ Easter festivities! On Saturday, April 13, 2019, East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District (EPABID) presents the Annual East Passyunk Easter Egg Hunt from 11:00am to 2:00pm on the lawn of the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center (1430 East Passyunk). Children are invited to decorate egg collecting bags, enjoy treats, dance to family-friendly tunes, hunt for prize-filled eggs and meet the Easter Bunny. Egg Hunt times are staggered by age group, with four and under at 11:00am, five to seven at 12:00pm and eight to ten at 1:00pm. After the festivities, families are invited to enjoy kid-friendly brunch and lunch menus at eateries along East Passyunk. The Egg Hunt is free and open to the public.

“The Easter Egg Hunt has become a wonderful tradition for so many families from in and around the neighborhood,” said Adam Leiter, Executive Director of EPABID. “It’s wonderful to have so many people come and share in the joy this event brings each year. Seeing the smiles on faces of both kids and parents at our numerous free festivities on the Avenue is truly priceless.”
Every year, hundreds of children converge on East Passyunk to hunt for eggs that are filled with candy and treats, plus golden-ticket certificates valid for businesses along East Passyunk, like Bing Bing Dim Sum, Essen Bakery, Favors and Flavors, Occasionette, P’unk Burger, Redcrest Fried Chicken, Roly Cow, Tildies’ Toy Box and Vanilya Bakery.
BEN FM will play tunes to dance into spring! The Easter Bunny will pay East Passyunk a special visit and pose for pictures using your camera. Children are invited to decorate egg collecting bags. After your little tykes work up an appetite, bring them out the Avenue for a delicious brunch or lunch at family-friendly spots like Black & Brew, Cantina los Caballitos, Chhaya Café, La Scalas Birra, Pistolas del Sur, P’unk Burger and others.
This event is free and open to the public. Rain date is set for Sunday, April 14, 2019. For weather updates and information, visit @eastpassyunk on Instagram and Facebook or @epassyunkave on Twitter. For additional information, visit www.visiteastpassyunk.com or call 215-336-1455.
