Easter long weekend: These events will definitely make this year’s Easter holiday a memorable one for you!

Just like Christmas, Easter comes around once a year. And while many of us see it as the celebration and commemoration of a religious icon, others find it as a break from work. Either way, this holiday is for relaxing and what better way to do that than to be around buzzing hotspots?
