Easter has arrived in West Michigan, which means Lent is over and now you can really celebrate.
Whether you've been abstaining from anything or not, now's a great time to indulge, whether that means a sweet treat, trying that new restaurant you've heard so much about, or hitting one of this weekend's events.
From concerts to comedy, classic movies, games and more, here's what's on our radar for the week ahead:
