Virginia Beach Top Things To Do April

Last modified: March 3, 2018

Flowers aren't the only things that start to bloom in April. The warming weather coaxes the local residents and early bird tourists out of their cozy, comfy homes and into the brisk refreshing spring air. April starts the year off right because there is something fun to do virtually every single weekend. Check out what events are happening this month!

Easter Egg Hunt

The first event of the month will be a family-friendly one held at Hunt Club Farm. Bring everyone to this annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 1st (Easter Sunday)! Other activities besides the egg hunt include a farm tour hayride, inflatable amusements, a petting farm, and a visit with the Easter bunny. The cost is $15 per child and $5 per adult. Other activities not included in the general admission price are pony rides, face painting, concessions, carnival rides, prizes, and more. Click here to get all the details!

Crush N' Run 5k and Beach Run

You don't even have to be a runner to enjoy this fun Virginia Beach annual event. The Crush N' Run invites all to participate in their 5k run. We think the best part about this race (aside from taking in the gorgeous views of the oceanfront) is the after-party! Immediately after finishing the 5k, you'll be handed Waterman's famous Orange Crush. Enough said. Get registered by clicking here!
