Now that we are into Daylight Saving Time and spring has sprung, it’s time to usher in the Easter holiday weekend egg-stravaganza (sorry, couldn’t resist being a little Easter punny). So many egg hunts (and other fun activities), so little time! Let’s break it all down.
On Friday, March 25, head out to Cape Henlopen State Park for the 48th Annual Great Delaware Kite Festival and 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt. From 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. participants will enjoy kite-flying contests, demonstrations, kite and craft vendors, food and fun.
Start off your Saturday, March 26, with Breakfast with the Easter Bunny from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal in Lewes. There will be two seatings offering hot and cold buffet selections (9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.), photo opportunities, and an egg hunt between seatings at 10:00 a.m. Reservations are required.
Also on Saturday the kiddies can continue their egg hunting missions at either the Lewes Canalfront Park Easter Egg Hunt or the Dewey Egg Scoop. Registration for the Lewes event opens at 10:00 a.m. with the egg hunt starting at 11:00 a.m. The cost is $5 per child (10 and younger). There will be face painting, a balloon twister and a visit from the Easter Bunny. The Dewey Egg Scoop is free of charge and runs from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Dagsworthy Beach. There will be three age-specific egg hunts, free photos with the Easter Bunny, games and music.
On Easter Sunday, March 27, sunrise services will be held at 6:30 a.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand (Westminister Presbyterian Church, 301 King Charles Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, in the event of rain) and at Lewes Beach. All are welcome.
