Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you're having a great weekend. If you're looking for something to do this week, we've got a great roundup for you! Also, be sure to check out these roundups on where to visit the Easter Bunny, Passover events, and Easter egg hunts. And I also need to give a shout out to the spectacular Boston Ballet!
