COVID can't cancel the Easter Bunny's visit to the SouthCoast in 2021.

Our favorite oversized bunny will be making a trip through Fairhaven over Easter weekend to wave hello to the kiddos and welcome in spring. On April 3 at 1 p.m., the Easter Bunny and some of his friends will hop on a fire engine at Oxford School, getting ready for their two-hour tour of the town.

Kids will be able to safely interact with the bunny-of-the-hour at a few designated stops along the way at St. Mary's Church, East Fairhaven School, Wood School and Fort Phoenix.

Despite being in town for a tour of Fairhaven, the Easter Bunny will not be making his annual stop at the Dartmouth Mall to take pictures with SouthCoast kids and their families this year. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the mall opted to instead offer spring portraits by-appointment only. Weekend time-slots started on March 21, and mini sessions will also be available on March 27 and 28.
