Busy Day of Baseball and Bunnies for Belmar and Lake Como Youngsters


BELMAR/LAKE COMO, NJ — Baseball and bunnies are on tap today for youngsters in Belmar and Lake Como.

The day kicks off at 8:25 a.m. with the Belmar-Avon-Lake Como Little League’s Annual Opening Day Parade, which begins at Main Street and 18th Avenue, Lake Como. The Little Leaguers will march to their fields on 22nd Avenue, where an opening ceremony will precede the season’s first games.

Activities then will move to Ocean Avenue, where Belmar will hold its annual Easter Egg Hunt at 11 a.m. on the beach directly across from Second, Third and Fourth avenues. Please be prompt, because if the past is any guide, it will not take long for children age 1 through 9 to find the more than 3,500 candy-filled eggs that will be placed in the sand. Two eggs in several age categories contain tickets for a special treat. The rain date is Sunday, April 9 at 11 a.m.

Then it’s back to Lake Como, where Bar Anticipation on 16th Avenue will host two egg hunts at noon — one for toddlers to 6-year-olds and another for children age 7 through 13. There will be free refreshments and an outdoor buffet for the kids.

Who’s expected to be on hand for each egg hunt? The Easter bunny, of course.
