As farmers markets and outdoor concerts prep to debut within the next few weeks, various other spring-themed events are taking place around the area. Here’s a list of upcoming Hoboken events to help you embrace the season:
HFA Annual Spring Fling Egg Hunt: Saturday, April 12
You know spring is in full swing when your weekend consists of egg hunts and bunnies. The Hoboken Family Alliance is hosting its annual Spring Fling Egg Hunt at Columbus Park this Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. Children of all ages will get many chances to scour the area for eggs that they can cash in for goodie bags. The hunt will be continuous, so participants can hunt in 15-minute intervals and then re-enter to find as many eggs as they can. In addition to the egg hunt, families can pose for pictures with bunnies and spring-themed props thanks to the Hoboken High School Art Department.
To pass it forward, HFA members welcome you to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to the Hoboken Shelter.
Location: 9th and Clinton St.
Hoboken Bunnycon: Saturday, April 12
For those of us who are always looking for an excuse to partake in a bar crawl, you have yet another chance this weekend. The third annual Bunnycon will kick off tomorrow at 10 a.m. so throw on your bunny ears and cook up some eggs with your morning beer. Each participating bar will have specials just for Bunnycon bar crawlers so be sure to purchase your $12 ticket here.
