Get ready for a new way to celebrate Easter with a different take on “The Great Egg Hunt” on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
On Saturday, March 27 and Saturday, April 3, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. children infant to seven years old can hunt for eggs at Boardwalk shops and restaurants.
Traditionally, the egg hunt has been held on the beach, with thousands of stuffed multi-colored plastic eggs filled with candies, toys and other goodies.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, due to gathering restrictions, the city canceled the hunt for the last two years.
That was when the Boardwalk Merchants Association members thought of a new way for children and their families to enjoy the day, explained Wes Kazmarck, president of the BMA.
“The stores will have the eggs and kids can just come into the stores and pick them up,” he said. “It is kind of like hunting for eggs and they get to go to different stores for them. We felt this was the best way to do it this year.”
Refer to the attached flyer for the stores that are participating in the egg hunt.
