Usually, families would line up inside of a crowded mall to get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny, but that idea is currently not doable. During the pandemic when social distancing is key, some communities are getting creative.
The Build Ashland group along with support from an area family were able to set up a “Social Distancing Easter Bunny” visit. The weekend-long event allows families to take a photo with the Easter Bunny while still social distancing.
