This year, the Easter Bunny is running late for a very important date, with the 2019 holiday scheduled for Sunday, April 21—three weeks later than last year’s date. Luckily for East End children, the reasonable hare has agreed to make several appearances across the Hamptons and North Fork leading up to his big day. He was also kind enough to present us with the list of places to find him in the coming weeks. Check out the 2019 East End Easter egg hunts below.
