Bill Stevens the Aide to Commissioner Patty Sheehan of District 4 sent me an e-mail informing me that Easter Egg Hunts are popping up all over Orlando. There two hunts on April 7th, The Colonialtown Neighborhood Association's Annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place at 9 am on the playground at the Neighborhood Center, 1517 Lake Highland Drive, and another at Lake Como in Lake Como Park at 10:30 AM. This sketch was done at an Easter Egg Hunt in Langford Park. That Easter Bunny seems to be everywhere at once. This little boy was searching for eggs around the picnic table I was sketching from. His mom helped keep him motivated but when he couldn't find any more eggs, he started to cry.
Photo opportunities were the main order of the day. The bunny waved incessantly as children scampered and ran around him. It must be hot in there. I don't know how people survive in the boiling sun dressed as Disney characters for the tourists. I once heard that Winnie the Poo was thrown into a bush by a gang of teenagers. What did Poo ever do to deserve that? There is no way they are paid enough for the sacrifice. A bunny might get an attitude. Happy Easter.
