Cape May – Lewes Ferry Hosts Breakfast with the Easter Bunny
Festive Events to be held inside Ferry Terminals on April 15, 2017
(Cape May, NJ) Before he heads off to deliver tasty cream eggs and Easter candy to children around the world, the Easter Bunny has graciously agreed to stop at each Ferry terminal for a special breakfast with some of his favorite Delaware Bay children! The special “Breakfast with the Easter Bunny” events are scheduled for Saturday, April 15 in the salon of the Cape May and Lewes Terminals. Two special seatings will take place at each location: 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
“Our hospitality staff really looks forward to these special holiday events,” said Rhona Bronson, director of marketing for the Ferry. “A community event featuring the Easter Bunny, an egg hunt and special prizes, will definitely make for some great family memories. Seeing all the children’s faces as they hunt for eggs on the ferry lawn is priceless!” Bronson also noted that the Breakfast with the Bunny sold out last year and urged those interested in attending to reserve today.
A special buffet with a variety of tasty breakfast treats will be prepared; including sliced seasonal fruit, deviled eggs, granola parfaits, scrambled eggs with assorted toppings, buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup, hickory smoked bacon and country sausage links, Texas Sourdough French Toast, apricot glazed pork loin sage pan sauce, mushroom asparagus & ham strata, tater tots, assorted mini breakfast pastries and muffins, coffee, tea, milk and assorted juices.
In between the two seatings, children will be invited to participate in an Easter egg hunt at 10:00 a.m. “We wanted to make sure the egg hunt would be fun for everyone so we’re dividing the hunt into appropriate age groups,” Bronson added. “Each group will have its own area to hunt for eggs.” Only children registered for the breakfast with a wristband will be able to be in the egg hunt. In the case of inclement weather, eggs will be handed out to children at the breakfast.
Participants should bring their own Easter baskets or bags for the hunt. Each child will be asked to find 10 eggs. At the conclusion of the egg hunt, children will bring their basket to the Easter Bunny who will give each child a special treat.
The cost for “Breakfast with the Easter Bunny” is $15 for children ages 4-12 while adults are $25. Children under the age of 3 are free. Rain or shine. Due to limited capacity and anticipated popularity of the event, reservations are required. If space permits, walk-up customers will be accommodated.
