Whether you’re closer to the north or south end of Monmouth County, there is an event with fun activities for your kids to enjoy on Easter Sunday, April 20. The Easter Egg Hunt & Festival in Wall Township, which goes from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., features a massive Easter egg hunt with divisions by age, visits with the Easter Bunny, live music, storytelling, live bunnies and chicks, and more!

Are you a foodie? On Sunday, April 28 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., the Asbury Park Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 8th Annual Restaurant Tour. Fifty dollars will grant you access to a self-guided tour where you can sample food from over 25 restaurants. Some of them are right in walking distance of the registration station located at Press Plaza, while others are in different locations around Asbury Park. There will be complimentary shuttles, so this is also a great opportunity to visit some parts of town you may not be too familiar with.
