It's Easter weekend! If you've got young kids (and why else would you be reading this?), you've probably got an egg hunt on the agenda. While we are partial to the backyard variety after a couple of semi-disastrous goes, there are lots of local scrambles to check out this weekend. And a parade. And a petting zoo. And brunches.
Read on and have a lovely Easter, everyone!
