Well, Easter events couldn’t really start off without a nod to the Christian remembrance of the Easter story. Apparently this year it will be accompanied by a rapper, Asian dancers, giant puppets as well as drama and singing. So that sounds like a lively beginning to the Easter weekend. And of course, it’s free.
