Best Bets

1. Celebrate the weekend with some hot air.

From 7 to 9 a.m. Friday and Saturday, the McKinley Mall is offering free balloon rides (weather permitting). First come, first fly. Meet in the front parking lot, 3701 McKinley Parkway, Hamburg. On Saturday, stick around the mall for a cool magic show. Watch as bunnies prepare for their big day by getting pulled out of a hat!

2. Ready to do the Bunny Roll?

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at Explore & More children's museum, wee ones can shape and decorate their own bunny rolls from dough, enjoy the museum while they're baking and then wolf them down! Better yet? They'll be warm!

Find the museum at 300 Gleed Ave. in East Aurora. Admission $4.

3. Experience a Corpus Christi Easter, circa 1943, during a photo exhibit running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday.

On display will be 34 photos -- part of a Library of Congress collection -- that document the celebration of Easter. Also on display, imported from Poland, will be 20 handmade palms, created from dried flowers and wheat.

Find this historical treasure at the Kolbe Center, 178 Clark St. Admission is free, but don't forget a nonperishable food item for donation to the Response to Love Center.

4. Catch the first tours of the year at Graycliff, the country estate designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Darwin Martin family.

Tours will take place at noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Cost $14.
