Find Easter Egg Hunts, Events Throughout the Tulsa Area | Entertainment

Easter – whether one marks the day with reverence or frivolity – is in essence a celebration of renewal, of life starting anew with the arrival of spring.

Most Protestant and Catholic churches in Tulsa will hold special services that focus on the last week of Jesus’ mortal life, culminating in Easter Sunday services on April 17.

At the same time, local organizations and businesses will be offering a range of family-friendly activities associated with the equally ancient tradition of an oversized rabbit secreting unusually colored eggs throughout creation, for young and old to gather together.

Here are some of the Easter-related activities happening in the city.
