Easter in Seattle

Celebrate the arrival of spring with brunch, interactive egg hunts and fresh fashion

Maybe you're hunting eggs or beer this Easter Sunday, but whatever you do, don't skip out on Easter brunch somewhere in Seattle. Try BOKA on First Avenue for a special two-course meal with your choice of select brunch items, including lemon ricotta pancakes, spring vegetable frittata and a signature mimosa. Enjoy a beautiful view and brunch on the waterfront at AQUA by El Gaucho. This classy venue will offer a variety of brunch specials, including shrimp cheese grits, a wild mushroom omelet and crème brûlée French toast. A third, more mobile Easter brunch option is aboard the Royal Argosy in the Elliott Bay. Enjoy fresh salmon, prawn cocktails and egg scrambles for a truly memorable Easter brunch experience.

Alternatively, celebrate Easter with a race and egg hunt combined at the Scrambled Egg 5K in Redmond on Saturday. Although their online registration has closed, participants can still register in person on race day. Different colored eggs, representing different things, will be scattered throughout the 5K race course. Race participants can collect up to 10 eggs that will help or hurt their finishing time. Golden eggs with special prizes will also be part of the egg hunt. Find more races and race information at Gametiime, the Puget Sound's newest online race resource.

For those interested in a more traditional egg hunt for kiddos, flock to the Woodland Park Zoo on Saturday morning for the 12th annual Bunny Bounce. There will be a plethora of activities for kids and families, including craft projects, bunny encounters and egg hunts all over the zoo. Observe your favorite animals enjoying special Easter treats for this spring holiday.

No matter where or how you spend your Easter weekend, be inspired by bright spring fashion in fresh prints, materials and colors! Think floral patterns, lace and stud details and geometric jewelry in pretty pastels.
