Don’t miss the ornate arrangements of flowers and greenery as Macy’s department store becomes a lush indoor garden, or the special programming which will include live music and children’s activities. Sunday is Family Fun Day, and starting at 1 p.m. families are invited to explore the Beautiful China garden with the Sino-American Friendship Association, see a presentation of “Peppa Pig and the Muddy Puddles,” and dance with the Rockettes, who will teach steps from their new “Spring Spectacular” show. (Free, 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily, opens Sunday)
Toddlers to third graders are invited to the Lower Manhattan Community Church for an Easter egg hunt, as well as games and prizes, crafts and a photo booth. (Free, 11 a.m. – 1p.m. Saturday, Manhattan)
“Camp Kappawanna,” a new children’s musical with music and lyrics co-written by Grammy-nominee Lisa Loeb, follows the camp misadventures of 12-year-old Jennifer Jenkins. Portraying the fear and excitement that comes with leaving home for the first time, the show’s acoustic sound will transport audiences to a cozy spot beside the campfire. (Starts at $15, opens Saturday, Manhattan)
