Easter Weekend Preview

For generations, Easter Weekend has coincided with the the unofficial "opening" of the Boardwalk.

As the holiday is being celebrated later than most years, an even greater number of businesses will be open over the next few days. Plus, the weather is expected to cooperate; so come on down, and celebrate the kickoff of the season in the Wildwoods!

At least four traditional FREE Easter Egg Hunts will be taking place this weekend (if anyone has info on others, please drop us a line at so we can add them to the list...

The Elks will be holding their annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday at noon, on the beach at 17th Avenue in North Wildwood.

Children 11 and under can participate and collect prizes. For more info, call 609-729-5776.

Also on Saturday at noon, the Greater Wildwood Jaycees will present their egg hunt, on the beach at Lincoln Ave.

Children 12 and under can dig for eggs buried in the sand. Each egg will contain a toy, with golden eggs worth bigger prizes. Call 609-522-5501 for more info. 

On Sunday, both Lime Ricky World (3409 Boardwalk) and Ed's Funcade (23rd & Boardwalk) will be hosting egg hunts.

The annual Lime Ricky World Easter Egg Hunt will be held on the beach from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will be followed by an ice cream-eating contest at 2 p.m. and a mystery drawing at 4 p.m.
