THE WILDWOODS – The weather is starting to warm up, and so is the excitement for spring and outdoor Easter fun in the Wildwoods. This island resort is thankful to have been virtually unscathed by Superstorm Sandy, and they are celebrating with an Easter weekend filled with family events Saturday and Sunday, March 30 and 31.
On March 30 families choose from two separate Easter egg hunts – both starting at noon. On the beach in North Wildwood at 19th Avenue, children 11 and under can hunt for eggs and gather candy and prizes during the Elks Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Just a few blocks down on the beach at Lincoln Avenue in Wildwood, children under 12 can participate in the Greater Wildwood Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt for eggs containing toys by digging in the sand to find them. There will be one “golden egg” which will contain a bigger prize. Rain date for the Greater Wildwood Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt is March 31.
On Easter Sunday, March 31 on the boardwalk at 23rd Avenue, Ed’s Funcade Easter Egg Hunt will take place from 12:30 p.m. – 2 p.m. Children under 12 can hunt for eggs and will have the chance to win great prizes.
Also on Easter Sunday, Morey’s Piers hosts its Opening Day & Easter Celebration from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. This event kicks off the spring season in the Wildwoods and is sure to bring the kid out in everyone. All of the Wildwoods boardwalk eateries, shops, games and arcades will be open for a full weekend of fun with rides, food, entertainment, including strolling stilt walkers and jugglers, face painting, pictures with the Easter Bunny at the Parent’s Pavilion and “Pick an Egg” for the kids. “Pick an Egg,” taking place on Morey’s Pier, will feature a large basket filled with plastic Easter Eggs for children 12 and under to open for a chance to win some great prizes, including two Special Edition Morey’s Piers Beach Cruisers by Zippy’s Bikes. Kids can also help design and color Morey’s “Monster Mural.”
Easter weekend is also a great time to “scout out” your summer vacation rental – plenty of great spaces are still available for your summer stay, so while you’re down here celebrating the Easter holiday, why not solidify your plans for the summer as well?
