It's Easter weekend and if that means brunch with the in-laws or a trip to the megachurch, bless. Here are some other fun Portland things to do.

🎸 Persuade a teen to descreen and mosh hard at Spring BreakFest, a two-day music event put on by the Friends of Noise, saviors of the all-ages concert scene.

🪺 Go for the low-hanging fruit at the Easter egg hunt at Lee Farms in Tualatin, a great Portland tradition.
