Easter Events in Martinez: Egg Hunt, Fun with the Kids, Church Services

First came spring, then came Easter and Passover. For Christians, the season of Lent comes to end after Holy Week, with Good Friday recognizing the crucifixion of Jesus and Easter Sunday celebrating the resurrection and new life. For those following the Jewish faith, Passover begins Friday evening and commemorates the exodus of the Jews from Egypt and freedom from slavery.
