Looking for the best things to do in Chicago this Easter weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.

Happy Easter weekend! It's the end of spring break in Chicago, so if you haven't gotten a chance yet, take part in an Easter egg hunt. There are big ones in ElmhurstLincoln Park Zoo, and Unity Park. Or you can see the Easter Bunny at a parade in Berwyn, a fun run in Durkin Park, or a brunch in the Walnut Room. Not celebrating a holiday this weekend? Visit Navy Pier for fun spring break activities or enjoy hands-on nature experiences at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

Many malls have one last chance to get a picture with the Easter Bunny on Saturday, so check our list if you are still hoping to get one. Visit one of Chicago's zoos to see what's new (spoiler alert: the dolphins are back)! Or finalize your summer camp plans from our Summer Camp Guide.
