Bunny on a Break

What does the Easter Bunny do when he is not delivering eggs? Find out at this drive-thru event! Join in some family-friendly fun from the comfort of your car. Each car will receive a fun snack to enjoy while going through the drive-thru. And at the end, the Easter Bunny himself will be there helping hand out a take-home Easter Egg Hunt kit! There is no registration for this event; just come out and enjoy the fun! Sponsored by New Life Christian Church.
