Dozens Of Local Families Expecting An Easter Bunny Visit


ARLINGTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — With social distancing guidelines in effect until at least May 4, it looks like visits with the Easter Bunny will have to be put on hold for most kids this spring.

That's not the case for dozens of families in Arlington, where a local resident is offering to help her neighborhood celebrate Easter despite the coronavirus pandemic.

"Since Easter will be very different this year, the Easter Bunny, respecting social distance, will walk and drive around the streets of Arlington to cheer the kids up!"

The organizer of the Arlington Easter Bunny Visit event, Claudia Clacla, said as of Saturday afternoon, there were 70 local families signed up to get a socially-distanced visit from her and her friend in Easter Bunny costumes.

The event is completely free, all local residents have to do is find the event of Facebook and let Clacla know they want their home to be included on the route.

The organizers are currently working on a map and a schedule to make sure every child who requests a visit gets one on Sunday, April 12th between 2-5pm.

"It would be nice to have music coming from porches and window to make it more festive!" Clacla said. "Last, but not least, let's hope for nice weather!!"
