Private jet charters for Easter
With Easter fast approaching, we’ve compiled a guide to the best seasonal celebrations in the U.S. and abroad. Whatever your plans for an Easter escape, allow us to get you there in style with a private jet charter this April.
White House Easter Egg Roll, Washington D.C.
Easter brings the chance to visit the White House and meet the US President and First Lady at the famous White House Easter Egg Roll. Since 1878, young children in Washington D.C. have descended on Capitol Hill on Easter Monday for a day of family fun. This includes face painting, celebrity readings and the iconic Egg Rolling Championship. There are plenty of activities for adults, too. There’s an annual lottery for tickets to attend the White House Easter bash which, according to first lady Melania Trump, is happening in February. Entering the lottery draw is free, and the lucky winners will be notified March 2, 2018.
Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival, New York
Easter on the East Coast is unlike any other. One of the most fun activities to do is to join the Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival marching up and down Fifth Avenue. Starting on 49th Street and continuing up to 57th Street, this is New York City’s biggest procession dedicated to eccentric and whimsical hats that celebrate Easter in a unique and fun way. For the best views, we recommend parking yourself at St. Patrick's Cathedral (between 50th and 51st Streets).
Belmont’s Easter Bash, San Diego
Mission Bay’s Belmont Park is hosting one of the biggest Easter egg hunts in the country this year. At 9am on April 16, 2018, the historic oceanfront amusement park opens its gates to visitors for a fun-packed day of activities – including a huge Easter egg hunt which sees 12,000 eggs hidden throughout the park and along the beach. For only $5 per child, this is a great day out for the family, finished off with a special Easter brunch at the Wavehouse, adjacent to Belmont Park. Tickets go on sale March 1, 2018 and can be purchased here.
Celebrate Easter across the pond
Those looking to ditch their traditional Easter celebrations this year can travel to London for an Easter theatre experience the whole family will enjoy. The UK capital’s theaters are putting on a range of children’s shows teeming with magical stories, from “The Elves and the Shoemaker” to “Grandad, Me... and Teddy Too”, ensuring that tots will love celebrating Easter on the other side of the pond. Treat the whole family to a trip to one of London’s egg-ceptional West End shows.
If any of these Easter activities have hit a sweet spot, charter a private jet with Air Charter Service this April.
