It only seems natural to bunny hop into this weekend (since Easter is on Apr. 1!). While you’re at it check out one of the many egg hunts happening around the DMV. If you’re more of the flying or leaping from building-type, swing by this year’s annual Awesome Con for a dose of super hero fandom.

Awesome Con
The sixth annual Awesome Con will unite 80,000 fans of comics, technology and science, TV, and film over Easter weekend. Attend panels hosted by celebrities and experts, view exclusive reveals, compete in cosplay fashion shows and gaming tournaments, and more. Fri.-SunEvent details.


Community Easter Egg Hunt
Lions and tigers and bunnies…oh my! Come join Be the Love, a community service nonprofit, for a day of free family fun!  There will be a Bunny photo op, games, crafts and an Egg Hunt (divided by age groups)!
It’s happening at Chessie’s Big Backyard, the parent-approved playground that families visit from all over the DC-metro area! Kids up to age 12, bring your Easter basket and a friend!
SatEvent details.


Wild West Adventures
This spring break kids can put on their cowboy hats and boots and join the B&O for a wild wonderful time! There’s bulls that need ropin’, bandits that need catchin’, ponies that need racin’, and much more fun to be had on the western frontier! Fri.-SatEvent details.


Amazing Farm Fun’s Spring Festivall
The Hunt is set up so that each child obtains a typical Easter basket full of eggs (25). Baskets available for purchase upon arrival. Meet and Greet with the Easter Bunny 30 minutes prior to the hunt time and find the Golden Goose Egg for an extra special prize! There are many other activities included with your admission to enjoy, including: giant slide hills, huge jumping pillows, hayrides, animal feeding areas, pedal kart track, and swinging bridge. SatEvent details.


‘Clue’ Quote-Along
Board game turned classic movie turned awesome quote-along! Even if you’ve never seen “Clue” before, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn and the gang will have you dying with laughter, but if you’re one of us who quotes it all the time, you can’t miss this. Don your best secret identity, select your room, but leave your lead pipes and ropes at home. (Don’t worry—you can purchase prop bags, so you won’t be empty-handed.). FriEvent details.


Spring Carnival
Bring on Spring! At this free carnival you’ll enjoy pictures with the Easter bunny, an egg hunt for kids under 11 years old, moon bounces, games and prizes, fire truck, refreshments, and more. SatEvent details.
