Shortlist 

Eggstravaganza, Steve Reich Festival and more

APRIL 7 SATURDAY

Callanwolde Fine Arts Center doesn't expect many frilly Easter bonnets at this year's EGGSTRAVAGANZA – just 1,000 little kiddies and their parents scavenging for oval-shaped treasure. With no stone left unturned (and no egg left un-hard-boiled), a cutthroat 10-and-under crowd promises to create one hopping scene. Enzo the Clown (right) and the real, live, adorably fuzzy rabbits on hand for petting may even upstage the ever-popular Easter Bunny this year. Free-$10. 10 a.m-noon. 980 Briarcliff Road. 404-872-5338. www.callanwolde.org. (Laura McMillan)
