The Easter Bunny, along with a few friends from the Perry Fire Department braved the weather to help spread some Easter cheer on Sunday, April 12.

Perry Hy-Vee brought its Easter Bunny to Pattee Park to wave to families as they drove past.

The bunny made an earlier appearance at Perry Elementary on Friday, April 10 during the school’s grab-and-go meal program.

Both visits were a way to help lift spirits after COVID-19 forced the cancelation of Easter egg hunts and other activities.
