Things To Do This Weekend for (Mostly) Free


Sunday at 10, it’s the Easter Parade on 5th Avenue between 49th and 57th. Get out your bizarre headgear and take a walk, or, if you’d rather sleep in, there is a live webcam. This weekend’s free museums: On Saturday, the Brooklyn Museum is showcasing its new exhibit of ancient egyptian funerary art, and on Sunday, the Queens Museum hosts a dance company paying tribute to the city water supply.
