The Highlights

Friday April 14 - Sunday April 16

Easter arrives on (what is promised to be) another gorgeous North Fork weekend, and locals and visitors alike can enjoy playful egg hunts this weekend. Saturday morning families come to Mitchell Park, on Greenport's beautiful waterfront, ride the carousel, collect eggs & goodies. Saturday afternoon head to The Old Field, which offers a family egg hunt with golden eggs and treats for adults too. Sunday stop by Stirling Square in Greenport in your Easter finery; not only will there be eggs to hunt and candy to enjoy, but prizes will be awarded for best hat and best pet costume.

Beyond all things egg, head to Sparkling Pointe for a special pairing with Macarons, to Palmer Vineyards for a trivia night, and a dozen places for live music.

The North Fork is a family, traditional place, so many vineyard tasting rooms will be closed Sunday. Not our restaurants though--many will be offering special Easter meals. So call ahead.
