4 things to do in York Easter weekend

Happy Easter!

Here are a few ways to spend the holiday weekend in York.

Take the kids to an egg hunt

It's not Easter without an egg hunt. Kids can meet the Easter Bunny and listen to stories during the Eggspecially Fun Bunny Run at Steam into History in New Freedom or paint eggs and participate in other children's activities at New Grounds Roasting Company.

The Easter Bunny will also make an appearance at Central Market in downtown York from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Beer and chocolate
