Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY -

Easter festivities were in full force in New Jersey this weekend.

The Easter Bunny made a special visit to kids at the Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck to visit patients. The Bergen County sheriff and officers were also on hand.

Children also flocked to Seaside Heights for the town’s annual Easter egg hunt.

A total of 15,000 eggs were scattered on the sand a day before the holiday. Each contained prizes from businesses along the boardwalk.

Jenkinson's Boardwalk also held its annual Easter egg hunt Saturday. Different age groups of kids searched on different parts of the beach.

Both Jenkinson's Boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach and Casino Pier in Seaside Heights also hold their annual ticket sales this weekend.
