Local restaurants also offer Easter feasts for people who have chosen to spend the holiday away from home at Bend, Oregon in April.

Decorating Easter eggs is not the first thing you generally think of when you think of bikers. Nevertheless, Harley Davidson bikes sponsors this annual event that takes place a couple of weeks before Easter at Vince Genna Stadium. The organization sponsors two egg hunts, one for tots and one for kids over 7 years old.
