Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

For a service: Get up early and watch the sun rise at Glen Foerd on the Delaware (5001 Grant Ave.) for a 6:30 a.m. non-denominational outdoor Easter Service complete with songs, prayers and readings.

For a bit of history: The latest special exhibit at the Betsy Ross House (239 Arch St.) shows how the home went from an old abode into a functioning historical museum. Check out "A Museum in the Making: The American Flag House & Betsy Ross Memorial Association, 1898 – 1941" from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.

For first Sunday: Between performances (like a 45-minute, Barnes-specific dance at 3:30 p.m.), talks (about an exhibition preview at 3 p.m.), art activities (from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.) and free admission, there's a lot to do today at the Barnes Foundation (2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway). Get there at 9 a.m. to get your free tickets.

For a tour: A Mansard-style home in Cape May turned bed and breakfast has been redesigned with each room representing a different holiday. Take a tour of the Cape May Designer Show House (25 Ocean St., Cape May, N.J.) between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

For tunes: Keep it low-key today with drinks and Irish ballads at Fergie's Pub (1214 Sansom St.) starting at 4:30 p.m.
