The Easter Sunday sunrise service returns on April 17 and kicks off a month of early-morning access to the most spectacular view in town. Special seasonal decorations and photo opportunities, live music and early morning access to the park will be available to VIP ticket holders on Easter Sunday, then on Tuesdays and Thursdays through May 17.
