The great Easter Bunny Train & Easter Egg Hunt is located at 99 Elizabeth Street in historic Phillipsburg, N.J. 08865. It runs for only two consecutive weekends so families can step back in time and board a steam locomotive. For three days; April 12, 13 and 19th, kids of all ages can have a fun time at this holiday celebration.
Ride the steam train with Mr. E. Bunny through the beautiful scenic landscape along the Delaware River. Take the train to a little glade in front of the historic Carpentersville Lime Kilns that date back to the 1700s. Once there you find Easter Eggs where each child can get a hug and take a picture with the Easter Bunny and receive four Easter eggs, containing small toys similar to those in Cracker Jack boxes.
While on the train, enjoy the Easter music, the gift shop, the snack bar, the banjo playing Hobo and a Juggler, will be back again offering fun for the entire family.
