cancelling the annual egg hunt in Winter Park

WINTER PARK, FLORIDA- COVID-19 breaks the tradition of the annual egg hunt in Winter Park for the second time.

Before COVID-19, the park was sure to continue its tradition of Easter egg hunt for nearly 65 years continuously.

City Manager, Randy Knight said, “Winter Park’s Annual Easter egg hunt is the city’s longest-running community event. COVID-1-9 can stop us from congregating in large numbers but it cannot stop us from celebrating. We just need to do it in a different way, from a safe distance.”

Instead, 3 small parades will be held on April 3 to celebrate the Easter egg hunt. The parade is to be started at 9 a.m.

According to the parade plan, there will be an Easter bunny who will hop down in three different neighborhoods.

People who are interested in attending these parades are requested to maintain COVID-19 safety and precautionary measures to be on the safe side.
