In today's UP: Easter festivities at the Toronto Zoo for the kids, the Blue Jays play for everyone (with tickets), Dev at the Mod Club for all ages, and the Spring Fever Festival for the adult crowd.
EGGSTRAVAGANZA: Easter Sunday may have come and gone, but there’s still some folks with today off, including those in school. So the Toronto Zoo has special Easter-themed programming today, including parades at noon and 2 p.m., and an Easter spin to the Explorer Stage show. The Toronto Zoo (361A Old Finch Avenue), 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., free with admission ($13—$23.)
BASEBALL: The boys of summer are back! The Toronto Blue Jays have already played a couple of games away from home, but this evening is the home opener. At press time, the game was sold out, though there was a vague promise that more tickets may be available online or at the box office day-of… and, well, there’s always the guys near Union Station and along Front Street yelling “TICKETS!” The Rogers Centre (1 Blue Jays Way), 7:07 p.m., $11–$210.
THEATRE: The Spring Fever Festival opens tonight and runs for the next several evenings. It’s presenting new theatrical and comedic work from The Young Geologists, Tony Ho, Marco Bernardi, and more. There are also workshops in puppetry and stage combat later in the week. Theatre Centre (1087 Queen Street West), 8 p.m., PWYC.
POP: Pop sensation Dev returns to Toronto for an all-ages show at the Mod Club tonight. She’s riding a wave of top 40 buzz after the release of her video for “Naked” with Enrique Iglesias—the first single from the American release of The Night the Sun Came Up, which hit the charts at the end of March. The Mod Club (722 College Street), doors at 8 p.m., $25.
