Prepare to scavenge! Egg Hunts on the way in Hoboken

HOBOKEN — Spring is upon us and that means it’s time to scavenge for eggs.
Two free egg hunts are on their way to Hoboken on the same Saturday: the Hoboken Family Alliance’s Spring Fling Egg Hunt, and Hoboken Grace Community Church’s Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 19.
Hoboken Family Alliance’s egg hunt will be held at Columbus Park at 10 a.m. and includes a shaky egg race, bunny hop race, and a jelly bean guessing contest (for the top prize of a bicycle).
Meantime, the Hoboken Grace Community Church’s egg hunt expects crowds of over 3,000. With the egg hunt gaining popularity since last year, this year organizers decided to add a second hunt in the same place, giving even more kids the opportunity to strut their scavenging skills.
“This event gets bigger and bigger each year. This year, we thought it was time to add a second and we are thrilled for that,” Chris High, Pastor of Hoboken Grace said in a press release. “The Easter egg hunt allows us to serve and love our community here in Hoboken in a big way and we’re excited to get to do that twice this year.”
The two hunts, which will be held at Mama Johnson Field (Fourth and Jackson Streets), will take place from 10 a.m. to noon and then from 1 to 3 p.m.
We advise you to check with the event holders to confirm all information. In addition to the egg hunt, attendees will have a variety of activities to take advantage of, including games, pictures with the Easter Bunny, face painting, and arts and crafts.
Registration for that one, available at, is required this year. – Steven Rodas
