The community shared lots of "thank-yous" on social media for the efforts of the Merchantville Police Department and Merchantville Fire Department - Niagara Fire Company in bringing the Easter Bunny around town on Saturday, April 11th to compensate for the Covid-19 cancellation of our annual Egg Hunt. As promised, on a beautiful afternoon, the EB tour visited every street in Merchantville bringing kids and parents outside - while maintaining a safe social distance - to enjoy seeing and waving to this folklore symbol of Easter as he passed their home.
This year's Borough Egg Hunt at the community center has been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and the Governor's call to limit large social gatherings so, The Niagara Fire Company will be touring the town with their good friend - The Easter Bunny - on Saturday, April 11th between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. The Fire company promises to visit every street in Merchantville and urges everyone to be patient! The Easter Bunny wants to remind everyone to maintain social distancing during his tour by remaining in your front yard and not approaching the fire truck. Happy Easter!
