Morey’s Piers Celebrates Mother’s Day with a Tea-riffic Tea Party

THE WILDWOODS – This Mother’s Day weekend, Morey’s Piers invites the entire family for a seaside escape to honor mom. Families will find a variety of events and activities to make every mom feel special!

On Sunday, May 13, mothers visiting the classic shore side destination will ride free from 12 to 5 p.m. on Mariner’s and Surfside Piers. From 12 to 2 p.m., families are invited to Mariner’s Pier to grab a seat in an oversized “English tea cup” and sip complimentary afternoon tea with an assortment of cookies, biscotti and biscuits. Kids can also decorate personalized sugar cookies for mom at the cookie decorating station located next to the Tea Cup ride. Tea and cookies are available while supplies last.

Live music, a balloon artist and pop-up dance performances by Shorestop Dance Convention ambassadors are scheduled to take place throughout the day. The Parents Pavilion on Mariner’s Pier will be transformed into a photo area complete with signs and props for mom and the whole family to take pictures.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, Jumbo’s Grub & Pub on Mariner’s Pier will serve up a special Mother’s Day brunch featuring pancakes, omelets, a breakfast burger and more. The restaurant will also be shaking up cocktails to toast mom including a classic Mimosa, Bloody Mary, Bloody Maria and even a MANmosa for dads.

For dinner families can treat mom to a meal at Jersey Girl starting at 5 p.m. The restaurant, located a block away from Mariner’s Pier, is under new management this season and will be rolling out a refreshed menu while offering the same Jersey Girl vibes.
