As of last Sunday, March 20, it's officially spring. Hopefully, this will bring about the end of the terrible Seattle winter weather, but, even if it doesn't, the beginning of spring also means it's time for Easter, Purim, and Holi. Here's a list of public events to mark all of these occasions, including a Bollywood dance party at Nectar with Holi colors provided, an Easter Bunny bar crawl, the Anti-Racist Purim Party, and a Psychedelic Equinox Party.

HOLI
CRY Seattle's Holi
This spring festival of colors (with roots in Hinduism, although it's now popularized across Southeast Asia and internationally) comes to Seattle, with all proceeds going towards CRY: Child Rights & You.

The festivities continue tomorrow night with the RED BARAAT Festival of Colors, featuring Brooklyn-based eight-piece band Red Baraat, who NPR dubbed "the best party band in years" and are known for their mix of bhangra, go-go, rock, and jazz, and Bollywood singer/dancer/DJ Prashant. (March 19-20)

EASTER
Bunny Bounce
This "Bunny Bounce" offers kids' activities (including egg hunts, crafts, and "bunny encounters") but the real draw is what's on offer for the critters. Woodland Park Zoo promises "Easter Enrichment for the Animals" and no joke: it's part of their program to enrich the lives of the zoo's animals and "promote natural animal behavior." (March 26)

BunnyCon: The Easter Bunny Bar Hop 2016

Easter Brunch Cruise
This two-hour cruise around Lake Union and Lake Washington starts with a champagne or sparkling cider toast and includes a buffet (which you can eat at your own private table), site narration from the captain, and a special visit from the Waterways Cruises SeaBunny—with "treats for the children." For an additional fee, you can also upgrade to a special package with flowers, personalized cakes, and more champagne. (March 27)

Easter Brunch
If you'd rather eat out at a restaurant on the ground, your brunch options include RN74, Maximilien in the Market, Golden Beetle, Delicatus, Serafina (with live jazz from Pasquale), and the Melting Pot (with "endless fondue").

Kill The Keg
What screams Easter more than listening to metal, drinking $1 drafts, and watching a "hunky Jesus contest"? (March 27)

Pastor Kaleb's Easter Sunday Service
It's the 17th annual nondenominational-in-the-extreme Easter Sunday service by Pastor Kaleb Hagen-Kerr, a performance artist who gave his first official service in the streets during Seattle's WTO protests in 1999 and has been a local legend ever since. There are currently no more tickets for this event available online, but there's always a chance there might be some at the door. (March 27)

Stiffed Easter Sunday Tea Dance
Kremwerk will host an Easter edition of their Sunday Tea Dances, which harken back to the tradition of gay men in the 1970s who "were consciously rebelling against the effete stereotypes associated with the manicured, sweater-wearing, tea-drinking gays of the Fire Island set," and instead wore T-shirts and drank beer—on Sunday afternoons, in order to make the most of the weekend and still make it to work the next day. Kremwerk's free Tea Dance will feature disco music from DJs Dana Dub and Pavone and a $1 beer bust. (March 27)

Celebrate Purim with magicians, costumes, and food at the Mercer Island Community Center. (March 24)

Until You Don't Know: An Anti-Racist Purim Party
This fundraiser for the Seattle Young People's Project promises a combination of beer and hamentashen. The organizers say, "Party with fellow Jews, organizers, musicians, artists, and rabble-rousers in honoring Purim in the most traditional way: provocative political theater, dancing, and, drinking until you just don't know what's what anymore." There will also be a political performance and live music from the Bucharest Drinking Team, and you're encouraged to wear a costume honoring the most "ludicrous political moment of 2016" to. (March 26)
