Bunnies and The Beach

Happy Easter from Barbara Scaffidi, Jersey Shore Specialist

All around the world, Easter weekend brings bunnies, Easter egg hunts, and bonnets. This weekend at the Jersey Shore was no different – except that there’s always the added fun of the beach! Our bunnies donned sunglasses, the Easter eggs were hidden in the sand, and more people wore flip flops than bonnets.

This is the weekend the Jersey Shore begins readying for the summer season. And despite initial fears that Superstorm Sandy would crush our 2013 summer, our Spring events went off without a hitch.

Jenkinson’s boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach took quite a beating from Sandy, but she didn’t win: their annual two-for-one ride ticket sale – held every Easter weekend – was up and running as usual. Saturday brought A Hoppin’ Hunt…candy, stickers, and prizes were hidden beneath the sand. Jenkinson’s South Beach Arcade re-opened with all new machines and their Facebook page broadcasted “Sorry Sandy…We’re Back!”

Pier Village in Long Branch held their annual Easter egg hunt in Festival Plaza. Children of all ages enjoyed fun activities on the oceanfront, with an appearance from the Easter Bunny himself.

Belmar’s Easter Egg Hunt took place on the 1st Avenue beach on Saturday, just 5 months after Sandy destroyed the town’s boardwalk. Thousands of plastic-filled eggs were hidden in the sand for the children to search for. It was a wonderful event that a few months ago, many would have never believed possible.

Even Manasquan was prepared with beach-themed festivities. “Miracle on Main Street,” a large-scale fundraiser for rebuilding Manasquan, began early on Saturday with Easter themed games, hula hooping, Lulu the Clown, and prizes for the children. Late afternoon and into the evening, the fun turned to the adults with a bar crawl through Manasquan, Brielle, Spring Lake, Sea Girt and Spring Lake Heights. Presented by Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, participating bars/restaurants had live entertainment and a free buffet.

Despite Superstorm Sandy, this summer at the Jersey Shore proves to be just as memorable as ever – contact me today for your perfect beach home or seasonal rental. There’s still time to close for the start of the summer season!
