“Furious” cars, Queen music, the Bunny

CHARLIZE THERON and Vin Diesel in “The Fate of the Furious.”

Fancy operatic rock and roll, or maybe you like getting your hands dirty? Or perhaps you need to hunt for some Easter eggs? If so, there’s some fun to be had this weekend in the Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Westminster area. Here’s our look.


The only major film in wide release is “The Fate of the Furious,” the latest in a very long series of car race-and-chase movies. This PG-13 edition stars Charlize Theron, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Helen Mirren.


The Strawberry Bowl – also known as the Festival Amphitheater – on Main Street in Garden Grove is the place to go for tribute bands. On Saturday Queen Nation will perform “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and other hits of Queen. The show is at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.


Things, Easter-ish and not, this weekend in the area:

  • “Sandcastles on Main Contest” is Saturday from 12-4 p.m. on the second block of Main Street in Huntington Beach. For $25 a group gets 300 lbs. of sand and all the implements for the construction of a grand sand palace.
  • “Easter Hunt and Family Day” Saturday at the Sports Complex in Central Park (Goldenwest Street and Talbert Avenue) in Huntington Beach from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Game booths, hunt for candy, pictures with the Easter Bunny and more.
  • The 9th annual “Eggs-Cavation” will be held on Saturday at the Atlantis Play Center in Garden Grove from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Egg hunts for four age groups, games, arts and crafts and pictures with the Easter Bunny. No ticket sales at the door.
