IN PHOTOS: Long Beach spends Easter Sunday in less-restrictive orange tier

Long Beach continues to see its new layers of freedom opening up after entering in the state’s orange tier, which has less restrictive COVID-19 rules on the public. While parks have been open to the public before going orange, this Easter Sunday seemed like any other: filled with cookouts and frolicking children in search for eggs.
