Event Round-up: Bunny Trail EggVenture, Elf Parade & More!

Saturday. The Children’s Museum of Denver will be hoppin’ for the Bunny Trail EggVenture, the museum’s annual spring festival. The fun starts on the museum plaza with music and games from Radio Disney—ride Vern’s Mini Train and pet cute animals from the Urban Farm at Stapleton, too. A springtime wonderland awaits inside the building: Storytime with “The Big Bunny,” live performances and lots of cool, seasonal crafts. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Children’s Museum of Denver, 2121 Children’s Museum Drive; 303-433-7444. Activities are included with admission: $8 for guests ages 2 to 59, $6 for 1-year-olds and seniors age 60 and older. Train rides are $2 each.

Saturday. Celebrate spring—and the May flowers to come—at Boulder’s Tulip Fairy and Elf Parade. Youngsters are encouraged to dress up as fairies and elves to join the Tulip Fairy in a short parade along the Pearl Street Mall. The kids will help the fairy awaken the thousands of tulips still “sleeping” in the soil. Bears will be waking up soon, too, so kids and parents can learn about bear safety after the parade, and listen to live music by Jeff Kagen and Paige Doughty. Marchers should gather at 2:45 p.m. Saturday; parade starts at 3 p.m. 1400 block of Pearl Street, Boulder. Admission is free.

Sunday. Greet the dawn at the annual Easter Sunrise Service at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This year’s service features Nadia Bolz-Weber, of House for All Sinners and Saints, as the preacher, plus music from bluegrass group Briar Branch and the Women of Note choir. Bundle up: Red Rocks is at a higher altitude than Denver, and it’s cold before the sun comes up. Can’t make it? Watch a live webcast via links at Gates open at 4:30 a.m.; service begins at 6 a.m. Red Rocks Amphitheatere, 18300 W. Alameda Pkwy., Morrison; 720-865-2494.
