PHOENIX – Whether you’re looking for a place to enjoy some brunch or a nice park to set up your family Easter egg hunt, Phoenix has it all for you.

Here are some of the holiday events planned for this weekend:

Brunch: The Wigwam
Families can enjoy an Easter brunch with the Easter Bunny at The Wigwam on April 21. Tickets include a brunch buffet for adults and kids to enjoy from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Brunch: The Boulders Resort & Spa
If you’re looking for an “adults-only” atmosphere, The Boulders Resort & Spa is holding an Easter Champagne brunch in Carefree. The luxurious brunch will include a fresh egg and omelet station, a bacon station, iced seafood and a frybread station with honey, powdered sugar, smoked salmon and Oaxaca cheese.
With such an extensive menu, it’s no surprise that tickets are $78 a piece, but the mimosa bar makes up for it. 

Brunch: 24 Carrots Natural Café and Juice Bar (vegan)
A Vegan Easter Brunch will also be happening at 24 Carrots Natural Café and Juice Bar in Tempe. This picnic-style Vegan brunch will include fruit, macaroni, beans, salad, potato wedges and more!

Egg Hunt: Kiwanis Park in Tempe (free)
For an event that won’t break the bank and doesn’t involve sitting down in a restaurant, the Tempe Easter Egg Hunt is happening from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Families can enjoy the free Easter egg hunt at Kiwanis Park. 
The hunt will include over 8,000 plastic prize-filled Easter eggs. All you have to do is bring your own basket!

Egg Hunt: Snedigar Sportsplex in Chandler (free)
The City of Chandler is putting on a free family Easter event this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Snedigar Sportsplex. This event will feature over 12,000 eggs and four scheduled hunts for kids up to nine years old.  
Entry is free, but there will be food and other activities available for purchase.

Train Ride: Verde Canyon Railroad
Verde Canyon Railroad is letting everyone in the area enjoy a train ride on Saturday, April 20. The Easter Bunny will be there to send you off. The train departs at 1:00 p.m.
