Easter Egg Hunt at the Discovery Center

All day long on Saturday, April 16. Trade your eggs in for prizes and learn a little bit of science as you explore over six combined floors at this indoor Easter egg hunt. Best of all, it’s free with admission and perfect for the entire family.

Adult Easter Egg Hunt at Mother’s Brewing Company

Do people tell you that you are “too old” to search for Easter eggs? Hogwash. Come to Mother’s Backyard the Saturday before Easter, April 16, at 2 p.m. and look for an egg or two. It may have a prize. Now who’s laughing?

Easter Sunday Brunch at Greek Belly

Special Greek breakfast menu including mimosas, bloody mary’s and more!

Easter Brunch at Lost Signal

Join Lost Signal Brewing for your Easter brunch. They will be open on Easter Sunday from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. with all your brunch favorites plus a couple extras. This year’s brunch special will feature a breakfast corndog: house ground breakfast sausage dipped in pancake batter and fried to perfection then severed with home fries and a side of syrup. The Easter drink special is a lavender mimosa.

Good Friday at The Downtown Church

The Tenebrae service follows the journey to the cross with scripture readings interspersed with songs. After each reading, a candle is extinguished and the service ends in a darkened setting and all exit in silence.
