Brace yourself: 4/20 is here, and the lineup of events is piled high. On top of such regular suspects as the gathering in Civic Center Park, there are some noteworthy newcomers this year, including pot-infused hikes and brunches, dispensary parking-lot parties and more. Here's everything we know so far, in chronological order:

Friday, April 20, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Civic Center Park
Broadway and Colfax Avenue
Under new promoters, the 4/20 event at Civic Center Park this year is no longer disguised as a political rally.
