THE WILDWOODS – As the weather starts to warm up, so will the excitement for spring and outdoor Easter fun in the Wildwoods. The Wildwoods are celebrating with an Easter weekend filled with fun family events Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1.
On Saturday, March 31, families can choose from two separate Easter egg hunts – both starting at noon. Children 11 and under can hunt for eggs and gather candy and prizes during the Elks Annual Easter Egg Hunt, on the beach in North Wildwood at 19th Avenue. Just a few blocks down on the beach at Lincoln Avenue in Wildwood, children 12 and under can participate in the Greater Wildwood Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt for eggs containing toys by digging in the sand to find them. There will also be “golden eggs” which will contain a bigger prize. The rain date for the Greater Wildwood Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt is Sunday, April 1.
On Easter Sunday, April 1, Ed’s Funcade Easter Egg Hunt in the Hay will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the boardwalk at 23rd Avenue. Children under 12 can hunt for eggs and the chance to win great prizes.
Also on Easter Sunday, Morey’s Piers hosts its Opening Day Easter Celebration from noon to 5 p.m. This event kicks off the spring season in the Wildwoods and is sure to bring out the kid in everyone. Boardwalk eateries, shops, games and arcades will be open as well as rides on the piers, food and entertainment including strolling stilt walkers and jugglers, face painting and pictures with the Easter Bunny at the Parent’s Pavilion located on Morey’s Mariner’s Landing Pier at Schellenger Avenue and the boardwalk. Children 12 and under can also pick an egg for a chance to win great prizes.
