The City of Manassas Park's Department of Parks and Recreation had to cancel the city's annual Easter Egg Hunt, but still found a way to bring the community together for the holiday weekend.

On Friday, April 10, the city hosted a mobile egg hunt.

"We wanted to still provide a sense of excitement and enjoyment for the community," said Tony Thomas, the city's recreation services supervisor. "We drove the Easter Bunny around to every city street in Manassas Park and dropped off eggs to kids and families — all while maintaining a safe social distance."

This Easter Egg Hunt has been hosted annually for more than 18 years and attracts hundreds of kids from Manassas Park and Prince William County.

"With many families homebound due to this virus, it was nice to provide them with a moment of relief and something that their kids could look forward to," Thomas said.

Pretty sure this is against CDC guidelines but I guess giving kids eggs is more important that stopping the spread
