Easter Bunny to visit Chesterton on Saturday with police and fire escort

Back To Front Page


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.”

Cincoski emphasized 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!”
