Winter days be gone! It’s the end of March and signs of spring are finally starting to pop up. Now’s the time to enjoy basking in the sun and being out and about. If you’re itching to get out of the house but aren’t sure what to do, we’ve got you covered. Newark and the surrounding area have TONS of things to do during the spring (even on rainy days!) so you and your family can take full advantage of this gorgeous season. Read below for a full list:
- You’re never too old for an Easter Egg Hunt. On Saturday, April 13th, grab the kids and join the city of Newark as they host their annual Egg Hunt over at White Clay Creek’s Carpenter Recreation Area. The fun starts at 10am and the rain date is Sunday, April 14th. Head over to newarkde.gov/669/Egg-Hunt for more info.
- Do some volunteer work. I know, doing work on your off time doesn’t sound like fun at first, but doing work for the community is always rewarding! The city of Newark is holding a spring community cleanup on Saturday, April 6th to celebrate Earth Day. If you’re looking to get some volunteer hours for your club, or you just want to make Newark a little cleaner, mark your calendar for Newark’s Spring Cleanup!
