Easter celebrations in the Greater Tri-City area

As the Lenten season nears its end, preparations for Easter Sunday are fast approaching. Stores are already selling Easter decals, candies, decorations, and eggs Ð items that symbolize a fun and family-friendly celebration. Communities are busy organizing activities - religious and secular Ð including church services, egg hunts, time with the Easter Bunny and parades.

At the heart of the festivities, is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his crucifixion, following a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. Christian religious activities recount the sacrifices and teachings of Jesus Christ. The week before Easter, called Holy Week, commemorates the Last Supper and His crucifixion.

Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs on or soonest after the Spring Equinox. This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 5. A few of many activities planned in the Greater Tri-City area include:
