In addition to CBC reporter Teghan Beaudette's column, here's a list of things to think about when you head out this weekend.

The Public Way of the Cross took place this Friday at 9:30 a.m. Winnipeg's Archbishop Richard Gagnon led the 27th annual procession.

The walk started at Holy Rosary Church in Osborne Village. About 1,500 people were present to take part in the 1.5 km route through the neighourhood.

"It's just an absolute wonderful display of people and their faith," said Joan Pringle, following the event. 

City libraries are closed Good Friday and Easter Sunday. But Millennium Library is open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All others are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On Monday, Millennium, Henderson and Pembina Trail Libraries are open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., but other libraries are closed.

Easter dinner will be served at Siloam Mission, thanks to REALTORS in Manitoba.
More than 50 volunteers from the real estate community will be at the shelter to serve lunch to those in need at noon. 

Assiniboine Park is throwing open the doors this Easter weekend, with extended hours.

Hop on the Domo Double Decker bus and get off at the major attractions including the zoo, the conservancy, or the Park Cafe to name a few. The zoo, conservatory and Pavilion are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The ParkCafe is closed Good Friday, otherwise open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Zoo Tram is also back starting on Friday. 

And if you can't decide, celebrate by hoisting a cold one at a bar thanks to Manitoba's new liquor laws.
