Easter Egg Drive Thru Event Guidelines

Drive past decorated Easter treat stations to receive Easter Eggs/candy/surprises and meet the Easter Bunny!  *Bring your own Easter basket or bag to collect all your goodies!  Family members remain in the vehicle the whole time.  Each station supervisor will creatively hand treats to the children in your vehicle while remaining socially distant, like by sliding candy down a PVC pipe into your child's basket.  Masks are required for everyone helping and participating at the event.

The PRD is very excited to offer a quasi-traditional Easter event while practicing safe fun for our community in a COVID-19 restricted environment. This will be quite a group effort. We are still looking for Easter Bunny helpers (individuals/businesses/service organizations) to hand out candy and treats. If you would like to participate as a Easter station to hand out candy/Eggs/surprises for this event please call 924-8080 or email  Additional information for candy stations is available in the documents at the bottom of this page.
