Peter Cottontail is coming

Tuesday, April 15, 2003

Frank Farmer is getting his lawn ready for a visit from the Easter Bunny this Saturday and Sunday. Candy will be given out and pictures can be taken with the long-eared visitor.

The Easter Bunny will be visiting Frank and Linda Farmer this weekend. The Farmers, 1319 N. Forest Ave. in Brazil, have decorated their entire front lawn in anticipation of the special visitor.

Everyone's invited to drop by from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to take your camera along to get a picture of the kids with the Easter Bunny. Candy will be given out by the happy hoppity hare.

The Farmers have had the Easter Bunny as a special guest for 11 of the past 14 years. Linda was asked why they started this holiday tradition.

"We do it for our own enjoyment," she said. " We just like having the people come."

Frank told the tale of one little girl who had come several times.

"She said, 'When the Easter Bunny's here you never come out. Are you afraid of him?'" Frank recalled with a smile.

"I told her I got frightened by the Easter Bunny when I was a kid so I just stay away when he's here.

"It's fun," Frank said. "We hope lots of people come by this weekend to visit with the Easter Bunny."
