Whether families celebrate Easter with Jesus or simply enjoy Easter bunny photos and a good egg hunt, there are plenty of ways to celebrate this spring holiday in Kirkland.

Kirklanders only need now wish for sun.

Here are just a few of the events taking place this weekend.

April 18

Good Friday Labyrinth Walk

11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

St. John’s Episcopal Church, 105 State St. S. in Kirkland.

The St. John’s Episcopal Church is hosting an indoor labyrinth - the word means a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one’s way. The walk will be in Marsh Hall and will be a “quiet space of insight, contemplation and meditation.” Although the event ends at 3 p.m., 2:40 p.m. will be the last opportunity for people to enter before it closes. There will also be an outdoor labyrinth painted on the State Street Courtyard. The outdoor one does not have a time restriction but should also be treated as a place for reflection and meditation.

For more information, call 425-827-3077 or email padmin@stjohnkirkland.org.

The Power of the Cross

10:45 a.m. to 12 p.m.

A Mark Hayes Musical presentation, The Power of the Cross is the third of a four part concert series.
