Easter weekend activities and events

(WTVM) - Easter Sunday is only days away, and many take the entire weekend to celebrate the holiday.

Easter weekend usually begins on Good Friday, the Friday before Easter Sunday. Good Friday is the Christian holiday that commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The weekend rounds up with Easter Sunday, also known as Resurrection Sunday, and celebrates Christ's revival.

Here are several area events and activities to bring in Easter weekend:
