Weekend Events, Giveaways, Our New Birthday Club and other Exciting TR Mac Kid News

By Melissa Wudzki, Publisher, Toms River Macaroni Kid April 12, 2019

Wow! March and April have been whirlwinds here at Toms River Macaroni Kid! Easter is in full swing! We have a complete list of all the local Easter Hoppenings in the area as well as the Easter Bunny Train Ride & Egg Hunt in Phillipsburg this weekend and next. Saturday is our last TR Mac Kid Easter Egg Hunt (that still has tickets available). This is our one and only OUTDOOR Easter Egg Hunt and I have it on good authority from the Easter Bunny that the rain will stop this Saturday with plenty of time to spare before our hunt kicks off at 1PM. The hunt takes place at Winding River Park on Route 37 (across from Community Hospital). Registration is required and you can register here until 10PM tonight to attend.

There are so many great events going on this weekend, that I had to take a minute and make a list for our TR Mac Kid families. I will be at Playa Bowls in Toms River tonight for our first Pop-Up Storytime starting at 6:30PM. Put the kids in their PJs and head over for a story, some coloring and games! 

Saturday you can start your day with a great FREE family fun event -  OCEAN COUNTY CHILDREN'S FESTIVAL @ TOMS RIVER LIBRARYThere are also Bagels with the Bunny at Lucky Leo's and the Ocean County Mall.  We won't have bagels but we will have the Easter Bunny along with snacks, Easter eggs, prizes and games at our Easter Egg Hunt at Winding River Park at 1PM. 

Are you ready for summer? Dip your toes in summer mode and head over the bridge for the Opening Weekend at Casino Pier! Lastly, another great FREE family event at EGGSTRAVAGANZA 2019 - TOMS RIVER - but be sure to register first!

On Sunday, there are egg hunts in Manchester, Seaside Heights and Point Pleasant Beach along with an Easter Bunny Breakfast in Beachwood! Don't forget to stop by the Blue Claws Flea Market!
