Whatever else you have planned for Easter Sunday, make time for these unique outings.

Full Bunny Contact

This “insane Easter carnival” is neither as raunchy nor scary as it sounds, but the main event does involve being locked in a cage trying to collect as many eggs as possible while three Easter Bunnies do their best to reclaim them. There are also midway games like Shoot the Peep (with a paintball gun!), Egg Putt and a questionably appropriate dunk tank. $10-$60, Through Sunday,107 Suffolk St.

Pet a kangaroo

The egg hunt at The Standard, High Line’s Biergarten is strictly for kids, but there’s no age limit for the petting zoo, which will include your usual bunnies, lambs and goats, joined by a kangaroo(!). Head over after a classic brunch at the Standard Grill or the grown-up version (aka no kids allowed) at The Top of the Standard cocktail lounge. Free, Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., 848 Washington St.

Irish music and bonnets

You’re already wearing your Sunday best, right? Come to the Dead Rabbit for an old-fashioned Easter Bonnet Contest beginning at 5 p.m., with a $100 voucher to be had.Traditional fare and eggnog cocktails will be served all day, and there will be live Irish music from6-10 p.m. 30 Water St.
