Since the annual Spring Eggstravaganza had to be canceled because of the Safer at Home order due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Easter Bunny is having to get creative this weekend on Miami Beach.
Miami Beach moms and dads who send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org by this afternoon at 5:00 and give their full names, addresses, special instructions on how to get in to buildings (if necessary) and number of children in their homes will get a special visit today or tomorrow between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Parks and Recreation Department Assistant Director Cindy Casanova says team members will dress up in full Easter Bunny costumes and make door-to-door goodie bag deliveries.
"I can imagine the joy on a child's face to see the Easter Bunny hopping down, you know, their driveway with a bag of goodies for them. I think it's not only put a smile on the children's faces but also on the parents' faces which, who I'm sure are going through a tough time now."
She says they expect to give out 750 baskets.
Any leftovers will be brought to senior centers and given to the families of first responders and essential employees.
