With both Easter and Earth Day upon us, there are a lot of opportunities to have some fun. Just make sure you find all of those eggs -- there’s nothing fun about finding a little pastel-colored egg way up on a high shelf sometime in November!
This weekend you can hunt for those elusive eggs, celebrate Earth’s more scaly residents and see an uplifting film about one resilient girl.
Our goal is to make the Weekend Planner as reliable as possible, but keep in mind, some events change at the last minute. We advise calling ahead just in case.
