Ocean City to Host Great Egg Hunt and Easter Bunny


Ocean City’s spring calendar opens with events that showcase the Boardwalk and downtown districts.

The first of two Great Egg Hunts will return to the Boardwalk on Saturday, March 23. Participating merchants will invite children up to age 7 to visit stores with their families to collect eggs filled with toys, treats and prizes.

The free event will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. or while supplies last. Flyers will direct families to participating stores to collect eggs trick-or-treat-style. Rain date is March 24. A second Great Egg Hunt is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. March 30 with a rain date of March 31.

The Easter Bunny will be in town to visit with children 9 a.m. to noon on March 23, 24 and 30 at Mark Soifer Park at the corner of Ninth Street and Asbury Avenue. The event gives families a chance to take advantage of all that Ocean City’s downtown shopping and dining district has to offer.

Ocean City announced that Philadelphia Flyers great Brian Propp will be the grand marshal of the Doo Dah Parade on April 13.

Propp surpassed 400 goals, 1,000 games and 1,000 points in a 15-season National Hockey League career. He is a member of the Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame and is third on the team’s all-time scoring list with 850 career points as a Flyer.

Propp played in five Stanley Cup championships and five NHL all-star games. He went on to become a sports broadcaster, entrepreneur, business relationship and development guru and a philanthropist in the community.

The 37th annual Doo Dah Parade will start at noon on Saturday, April 13, with Propp leading the way. The Doo Dah Parade was born in Ocean City in 1986 as an event to celebrate the end of income-tax season. The procession features marching bands, floats and a brigade of hundreds of basset hounds.

The parade begins at Sixth Street and Asbury Avenue, proceeds to 12th and Asbury, turns east to the Boardwalk and concludes on the Boardwalk at Sixth Street.
