A late Easter this year means that all the trees and flowers in Annapolis should be fully in bloom by the time the spring holiday rolls around. The air might even be warm enough for us to stroll around downtown, by the water and on our way to all the egg hunts and brunches in town on Easter Sunday.

There’s plenty for the kids to do on the weekends leading up to April 21, and there are even a few fun grownup events like “adult Easter egg hunts” and Bloody Mary bars. Get your photo taken with the Easter bunny, dye some eggs and enjoy a delicious brunch buffet on Sunday morning — there are plenty of options for where and when you can do all these festive Easter activities in Annapolis this year.
