Kids and parents celebrated the warmer weather with the Easter Bunny Brunch at Aviator Sports and Events Center on March 29.

Youngsters dined with the beloved bunny and one parent said her daughter even donned white and pink bunny ears to match her fuzzy friend.

“She said, ‘Mom, don’t forget my ears, don’t forget my ears,’ ” said Coretta Dixon, who lives in Queens and attended the brunch with her daughter Jaelyn. “She was excited.”

The menu featured eggs, pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, grilled flank steak, roasted pork shoulder, and quiche. But one parent only nibbled at her food because she said the meat-centric meal didn’t have enough options.

“I don’t eat beef or pork, so the other options weren’t too appetizing,” said Raven Ishman, who lives in Canarsie and attended the event with her daughter Braxton.

But Ishman said the menu satisfied her daughter, who especially enjoyed decorating cupcakes with colorful candies at the dessert station.

“She took it really serious,” she said.

Because the brunch was so popular last year, Aviator added a morning and afternoon section to avoid overcrowding.

The afternoon section sold out, but the less-crowded morning event was perfect for Ishman, who brought her extended family to the big brunch.

“We had family visiting from out of town, so it was a nice activity for us to do in the morning to get our day started,” she said.
