Easter weekend invites exploration throughout Montgomery County, with kid-friendly dining and plenty of family fun - as well as events for grownups. Grab a handful of jellybeans on your way out the door and have an egg-ceptional time.

Elmwood Park ZooThe Easter Bunny and his various egg hunts pop up all over the county. See our extensive list, pick a venue and hop to it!

All weekend long (April 3-5), fans of sci-fi, anime and fantasy will chart a course across the galaxy to Comic Con at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. In addition to the displays and merchandise, the list of celeb appearances makes this a not-to-miss event: Star Trek fans can get up close and personal with cast members from the original series (George Takei, Mr. Sulu; Nichelle Nichols, Lt. Uhura; Walter Koenig, Mr. Chekov) and Next Gen (Jonathan Frakes, Cmdr. Riker). Also scheduled is Christy Carlson Romano, the voice of Kim Possible, and J. August Richards, who recently played Mike Peterson/Deathlok in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Get your tickets and get there early; the only thing more likely to fill the Expo Center quicker than Comic Con fans is litter of tribbles.
