SEA GIRT — The annual Easter egg hunt will be returning to The Plaza in Sea Girt this Saturday, April 13.

The event is brought to the borough by the Sea Girt Recreation Department, which has been putting this event on for about the past seven years after taking it over from the Ladies Auxiliary, according to Patty Peterson, recreation director in Sea Girt. The rain date for the event is Sunday, April 14 at 1 p.m.

The day starts off at 10:30 a.m. with festivities before the hunt, including a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Ms. Peterson said she also feels it is important to involve the community so Manasquan music dance arts also comes out for the event to showcase the dancers talents. This year, the Sea Girt Elementary School’s peer leaders will also be getting involved by stuffing all the eggs for the event.

The hunt will start at 11 a.m. and is sectioned off between five different age groups, Ms. Peterson said.

After the hunt is over, everyone is invited to a special Easter story time with Sea Girt Librarian Lisa Luke.
