Easter is getting a makeover this year. Following in the footsteps of breakfast with Santa, the city‘s parks and recreation department has decided to host breakfast with the bunny. It will even be held at the same location of breakfast with Santa—the Kiwanis Community Center.
Parks and Recreation Director Laurie Beisecker said the city is just trying to make Easter more interesting. In the past, they only hosted an Easter egg hunt for the children in the community.
This year it has evolved.
The agenda for the day is simple. On March 23 at 9:30 the kids will have breakfast with the Easter Bunny. They will then search for hidden Easter eggs in Bicentennial Park. At the end of the day they will have a chance to meet the Easter Bunny, who will be sitting in the same seat as his predecessor, Santa Clause. The only difference is that instead of a Christmas themed chair, it will reflect the spring roaming grounds of the Easter Bunny.
Beisecker said it was at the suggestion of the Parks and Recreation Board they host a breakfast with the bunny event.
“I said let me check with our bunny,” Beisecker said. “And our bunny was all for it.”
Registration for the breakfast is $10 per child. Children under 2-years-old attend free. The deadline for registration is March 6.
