After months of rain, spring is hitting with a gush of sunshine, lush grass and blooms everywhere—all the better for hiding Easter eggs, strolling in gardens or just lazing in the park.

We hunted down a basket of Easter-adjacent events in or near San Francisco with decorated eggs, fun runs and—of course—Hunky Jesuses to check out.
