For nearly eight years SkyView Atlanta has been the local destination for a glimpse of the city from nearly 20 stories up. But for the first time, the attraction is hosting an Easter bash with multiple giveaways.

On Saturday, April 3 and Sunday, April 4, the inaugural Easter Eggstravaganza will feature a free meet and greet with the Easter Bunny. Plus, the first 50 guests will receive Easter basket giveaways on both days. Launching at 1:30 p.m., the two-hour event is free to attend.

Guests are required to wear masks throughout the property.
