45+ Things We Can't Wait To Do This Spring in New Jersey

Springtime is just a few chilly weeks away. Get ready to ditch the winter coats and boots in preparation for playgroundsfarm fun, and outdoor fairs and festivals. Some of our favorite Garden State events take place in spring, including the Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival, the New Jersey Renaissance Faire, and the Wildwoods International Kite Festival.

We're also looking forward to New Jersey's numerous egg hunts and Easter celebrations, not to mention the many great family performances coming to NJ stages this spring, including Laurie Berkner, a Llama LLama musical, and Disney on Ice.
