This weekend, you may be celebrating Easter with your family, and/or maybe celebrating the warmer weather outside. Here are a few of our best picks for your best bets.

1. Go on an Easter Egg Hunt. Create your own  or check out one of these community egg hunts on Friday or Saturday. (See all Easter event listings.)

2. Color Easter eggs with supplies you may already have at home: 
--Use sharpie to write on an egg.
--Use coffee, tea or wine to stain your eggs instead of using dye.
--Cover eggs in chalkboard paint, then write on them in chalk.
--Dye eggs with old silk ties (that you plan on never needing again.)

3. Check out "The Return," a Beatles tribute band performs at Theatre Dublin Saturday, 7p.m.

4. Floco Torres brings his tour back home to Rivalry's. Signs of Iris from Greenville, SC will also perform. Show starts at 9 p.m.

6. Check out the band St. Francis of Assisi and Thomas Wynn and the Believers at Cox Capitol Theatre in downtown Macon Friday. Doors open at 8 p.m., tickets at the door are $10.
