The best time of the week is finally here — the weekend — and Miami offers just about every activity. It’s three days of festive cacophony of music, art, and frosty tropical libations. End the weekend with an Easter brunch at one of many Miami eateries offering eggs, pastries, and other delectables.

Friday:

  • PenguinPalooza at Miami Seaquarium: Miami Seaquarium’s BunnyPalooza is the Magic City’s biggest Easter celebration, featuring the largest Easter parade in South Florida.

Attendees can also see Salty the sea lion and Lolita the killer whale and learn more about their lifestyles and environments.
  • Viernes Culturales at Maximo Gomez Park, AKA Domino Park: Visit Little Havana the last Friday of the month and you’ll find yourself transported by a rhythmic, cafecito-fueled spectacle reminiscent of the Carnival processions of Cuba’s golden age.

Saturday:

  • A Minister's Wife at GableStageIt ain't easy being a wife. Now imagine being a minister's wife. The musical A Minister's Wife, opening at GableStage this Saturday, delves deep into the complex sacrament that is marriage. Based on Candida by George Bernard Shaw, with music by Joshua Schmidt and lyrics by Jan Levy Tranen, the musical takes audiences inside the intimate nature of Rev. James Morrell's love for his wife, Candida.
  • SketchMIA: An Urban Sketch Tour at Miami Center for Architecture & DesignA picture can be worth a thousand words, especially if you spend an entire afternoon drawing it. Part guided tour and part art class, SketchMIA is presented by the Miami Center for Architecture & Design. Billed as a way to see historic downtown Miami's "landmark buildings through an architect's eyes," the two-hour tour takes guests to locations such as the Miami-Dade County Courthouse and the Church of Gesù.

Sunday:

  • Easter Brunch: Prepare for an overabundance of chocolate-filled bunnies and multicolored eggs, because Easter is here. Sweets and egg hunts aside, it's also one of the biggest Sunday brunch days of the year, meaning it's time to peep some menus and make reservations. From eateries familiar with the weekend meal soiree to those opening their doors exclusively for the holiday, consider hopping over to one of these restaurants offering eggs and pastries, as well as more elaborate plates. Reservations are a highly recommended.
