Easter events are still few and far between this year due to COVID-19, but there are a couple of fun events on the calendar including:

  • Great Egg Hunt: Although the beach won’t be filled with kids this year hunting for Easter eggs as it was pre-COVID, the city has come up with a socially-distanced way to provide fun for the kids. On March 27 and April 3, the Great Egg Hunt will take place on the boardwalk from 1-4 p.m. Kids ages 7 and under, accompanied by their family, can visit participating stores on the boardwalk to collect eggs with special treats inside. Grab a flyer on the boardwalk on either of these days and start the hunt!
  • JiLLy’s: The JiLLy’s team will be participating in the Great Egg Hunt. They’ll also be offering free parking at JiLLy’s Arcade during the event. Start off the Great Egg Hunt at JiLLy’s Ice Cream Factory and Arcade and receive a free goodie bag. Plus, be sure to say hi to the SiLLy JiLLy Rabbit while you’re there!
