New Orleans with Kids for Easter - things to do

We will be in New Orleans for Easter with a school age child and a tween. We thought about the City Park Easter Egg Hunt. Is it crowded? Are they too old? We also were going to watch the Easter Parade (I believe it is a bonnet parade). Where is the best place to see it? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

How about a mule drawn carriage ride? http://www.neworleanscarriages.com/
Remember to ride the St. Charles Street trolley to the Garden District.
Eat a begniet at the Cafe du Monde.

Steamboat Natchez for an afternoon right and, of course, the streetcars are always good.

Older kids would love the ghost tours; the Cabildo museum is interesting. It is in Jackson Square next to the St. Louis Cathedral and houses New Orleans history. Walking through the French Market is fun - lots of stuff to look at. Take the Honey Island Swamp Tour - great stuff!

As far as where to stand for a parade; if it is an uptown parade there is usually a family atmosphere around St. Charles and Napoleon....
