Easter Events 

There has not been a want for "eggstravaganzas" around these part. Case in point: the Eco EGGstravagnza at Shelby Farms (Saturday, April 4th, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.), which kicks off the park's month of Earth Day events. This family-friendly event includes an egg hunt, environmental exhibits, eco crafts, a fishing rodeo, nature hikes, live music, food trucks, and more. The park's new Treetop Adventure course and zipline will be open as well. The Memphis Botanic Garden is holding a Family Egg Hunt (Saturday, 1-4 p.m., $10), with age-specific hunts. The Easter Bunny will be there for photo opportunities and there will be a magic show and crafts. The Dixon's also in the egg-hunt game (Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-noon, $10). Reservations are required for this one: 761-5250.

Also happening Saturday are the annual Bunny Run in Audubon Park (9 a.m.), a 5K and fun run benefiting SRVS, which helps children with special needs, and the Easter Eve Concert at Levitt Shell (6-9 p.m.) featuring family-friendly music by the Passport and more from the students of Visible Music College.

All that egg-hunting can build up an appetite, so head downtown for eighty3's Easter brunch (Sunday, April 5th, 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.). The special menu includes an andouille sausage pie, brown sugar smoked ham, and a trio of desserts to choose from, including carrot cake ice cream sandwiches with ginger ice cream and lime caramel dipping sauce. Reservations: 333-1224. The Peabody will be having its annual Easter brunch (10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., $22 for children 5 to 12, $64 adults). This is a massive feed with 100s of dishes to choose from and a 32-foot-long dessert table. Reservations: 529-4183.
