Welcome to Easter weekend. For those in the holiday spirit, join the Easter Bunny for breakfast. There are also plenty of non-holiday things to do around Jacksonville like a paint-and-sip date night, an emo night and festivals. No matter what, we hope you have a chance to relax and have fun before the workweek grind begins again. Note: Most descriptions are courtesy of event hosts and edited for clarity.
