Easter will be a decidedly secular affair at Capital One Center this year.

The Tysons development will host an Easter at The Perch celebration in the skypark atop Capital One Hall (1805 Capital One Drive) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday (April 8), a day before the religious holiday is observed.

The highlight of the event is an egg hunt, which will begin at 10 a.m. with a 9:30 a.m. check-in time. Kids are required to have tickets to participate. The $20 price tag covers admission and a goodie bag, though it doesn’t include a $3.18 processing fee or the sales tax.

The rest of the festivities are open to the general public, according to a media advisory.

Post-egg hunt activities will include:

  • Live entertainment featuring Captain Seawalker and his Yacht Rock EGGS’travaganza
  • A petting zoo with alpacas, bunnies, and other animals from My Pet Alpaca
  • Easter k’EGG Roll
  • Easter-themed arts and crafts station
  • Easter-themed sack races
  • Temporary tattoo stations
  • An Instagram photo booth station
  • Meet and Greet with the Easter Bunny

Capital One Center also recently reopened its Perch Putt mini golf course after a winter hiatus. Players during Easter at The Perch will get music, giveaways and prizes from the hosts of the radio show Toby and Chilli in the Morning on WASH FM 97.1.

Raffle prizes will also be offered from Capital One Hall and The Watermark Hotel.

For those looking to celebrate spring without the Easter tie-in, Capital One Center’s now-biannual Perchfest is scheduled to return the weekend of May 19-21, per the media advisory.
