Cranford Spring Hop 2024

Believe it or not, Spring has officially sprung. It quietly started on Tuesday. Easter Sunday is just over a week away. But you can celebrate it this weekend at the Cranford Spring Hop 2024.

What: Cranford Spring Hop 2024
Where: Eastman Clock Plaza Park
When: Saturday, March 23rd, 12 pm to 4 pm
Admission: $12 per person

Cranford Spring Hop 2024

Organizers broke up this year’s hop into two separate time slots: 12 pm to 2 pm and 2 pm to 4 pm. This helps accommodate more children. Obtain entry by purchasing a $12 tote bag. Each bag includes all the supplies you need to participate.

This “hop” is a little different than other Easter Egg Hunts in the area. For one thing, you pick up your tote at the Eastman Clock Plaza Park. But instead of searching for eggs in the park, your child visits more than 20 different Downtown Cranford businesses to find the hidden eggs. Additionally, kids receive a special Golden egg with a fun prize inside. Make sure you snap a photo with the Easter Bunny sometime during your hop as well.

Scotch Plains Easter Egg Hunt 2024

Cranford offers their hop. Westfield organized their hunt on the same day as well. But not to be outdone, Scotch Plains also put together an Easter Egg Hunt of their own this Saturday. Starting at 10:15 am, kids ages 8 and under are invited to join the Easter Bunny at the Shady Rest Country Club. The Easter Bunny hid hundreds of eggs all over the country club’s golf course. This is a free BYOB event (aka “bring your own basket”). After the hunt ends, a balloon artist keeps kids and adults entertained. Several family-friendly Easter-themed activities are also planned for the day. Currently, the weatherman predicts a possibility of rain. In case that happens, organizers scheduled a rain date of March 24th.
