Easter Weekend

Easter is always an exciting time on Chincoteague. All the restaurants & shops open, new foals are born, flowers bloom, and the first waves of visitors come to the island. This year, Easter looks especially promising because it seems Spring has finally arrived. The Weather Channel is forecasting a beautiful Easter Week with very little chance of rain.
