The Easter Bunny is
coming to your Chesterton neighborhood on Saturday, April 11, after the
Police and Fire departments against all odds succeeded in securing EB’s
presence on his busiest weekend of the year.
Starting around 10
a.m. Saturday, the Easter Bunny, escorted by the CPD and CFD, will visit
every subdivision and neighborhood in Chesterton, traveling in a generally
clockwise motion beginning in Duneland Cove.
Of course, the
Easter Bunny has been fully apprised of the COVID-19 pandemic, so while he
will have candy for the kids, he won’t be able to pose with them or shake
hands. “The Easter Bunny is very conscious of the social-distancing mandate
and, while he will not be able to make contact with you, he would like to
see everyone’s best stay-at-home holiday smiles and spirits,” said Police
Chief Dave Cincoski, the Easter Bunny’s public information officer in
Chesterton. “The Easter Bunny would like to remind everybody to stay in
their yards, do not cross into the street, and maintain a minimum of six
feet from neighbors.”

that the preceding schedule is approximate. “When you hear sirens, you’ll
know he is close!” he said. “The Easter Bunny hopes to get around to see as
many as possible and apologizes for anyone he might miss. And if for any
reason he does miss you, he hopes you have a Happy Easter!”
