While pretty much everything is canceled these days, Easter is most certainly not. Luckily, the Easter Bunny knows how to practice safe social distancing during the pandemic. Stay close to home with your family and show your kids an eggciting Easter with these around-town Easter Bunny visits and virtual events.
Plus, not to miss: your town may also be participating in a front-door Easter egg hunt. To be a part of the holiday hunt, create a large colorful egg and place it on your front door or window. Then, drive or walk around your neighborhood safely, and see how many eggs you can spot for your imaginary basket. It’s eggs-actly what we need to enjoy the holiday this year.
