To Do This Weekend: Easter Edition

by ARLnow.com April 2, 2010 at 4:58 pm 0

There are plenty of things happening around Arlington to keep you busy this weekend, even if half of the people you know are heading out of town for the Easter holiday.

If you want to escape to solemnity of this Good Friday, the famous Raspberry Brothers will be razzing on the 1980s classic “Karate Kid.” Think “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” but live and in person. That’s happening at 9:45 tonight at the Arlington Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike).

On Saturday at 10:00 a.m., the Barcroft community will be holding its annual Easter egg hunt at 800 S. Buchanan Street. Attendees are advised to bring a baked good.

For adults who are jealous of the kids stuffing their baskets with Easter goodies, the Arlington flea market (15th and N. Quincy Streets) and the Courthouse farmer’s market (North Courthouse Rd. and N. 14th St.) will be open Saturday morning. The gorgeous weather is sure to attract a big crowd.

Finally, for those celebrating Easter on Sunday, early risers will be treated to an amazing sunrise service at Arlington National Cemetery’s Memorial Amphitheater. The service is free, but you’ll need to get there at 6:00 a.m.
