Cipriano welcomes spring with Easter festival


Cipriano Nursery and Florist in East Meadow was in full gear for spring on April 13 during its annual Easter festival.

Despite the day beginning with a light drizzle, the clouds dispersed and the sun came through as children searched the garden’s vast foliage for colorful eggs.

For roughly 50 years Cipriano has held an Easter festival at its location on 1660 Front St., adding an egg hunt in its gardens roughly 20 years ago. “The kids love it,” said Maria Cipriano, the nursery’s manager.

The day began with an Easter craft that included decorating spring flowers with vibrant Easter basket grass and plastic eggs. Next, Cipirano’s Easter bunny and unicorn greeted children before the festival concluded with a friendly egg hunt.
