    If you want to enjoy the lighter side of Easter, these events include parades, Easter egg hunts, puppet shows, and carnivals. Many of the performances and festivals take place before Easter Sunday, so you can celebrate and enjoy throughout the month of March.

    No bunnies or eggs here, this is a 65-minute pageant produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You don't have to be Mormon to attend. "Jesus the Christ" presents Christ's life, ministry, and mission through music, dance, and drama. There is no charge to attend. It takes place outdoors. See the schedule of performances and read my tips for attending.

    These restaurants offer Easter brunches and dinners in the Phoenix/Scottsdale areas. Some have Champagne, some feature the Easter Bunny, some are casual and some are elegant. There's a special Easter meal to suit every desire and every budget. By the time this list is done — I keep adding to it until just a few days before Easter —  there will be more than 50 places to enjoy your Easter dining experience!
