The Righteous Mothers are four funny, philosophical female folk-rock musicians who have been one of the Northwest’s foremost musical performing groups for the past 26 years. They whip their audience into a frenzy with zany original music, witty theatrics, and mind-boggling, intricate vocal harmonies, grabbing hearts and funny bones with songs about ice cream, labor pains, annoying dreams, and Supreme Court decisions. They surprise and delight young and old, gay and straight, male and female with their quirky humor and open hearts.
Woodland Park Zoo hosts the 12th annual Bunny Bounce from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, with egg hunts on the North Meadow and Easter-themed treats for the zoo’s animals. Bunny Bounce is for kids ages 1-8. Bring your own egg hunt basket or reusable bag. (To make sure candy and wrappers don’t make their way into the animal exhibits, the eggs will be empty and participants will receive their candy as they exit the zoo.)
