We adults may be planning huge family gatherings this time of year, preparing elaborate dinners, making reservations, and driving plastic rabbits into our lawns with wooden stakes, but Westchester’s kids know the true meaning of Easter: candy. Head over to these Easter egg hunts and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to snag the golden egg.
