Schaeffer’s Harley-Davidson held pictures with the Easter Bunny and a community egg hunt on Saturday March 30. All proceeds benefited the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

There were some tears, but both kids and adults enjoyed posing for pictures with the Easter Bunny and a purple Harley-Davidson as well as looking at the merchandise throughout the store, playing in the play room and participating in the family activities outside where food was available as well.

It was not only the humans that took part, but some furry friends as well as dogs and two skunks also took their turns with the Easter Bunny.

While some children jumped into the sidecar, others had to be coaxed or even bribed with promises from cars to candy before approaching the Easter Bunny.


Over the course of over four hours, 203 different shots of pictures were taken before the egg hunt later in the afternoon. People were also taking pictures with a giant yellow peep that arrived in a Peep Mobile outside.

Many of the kids enjoyed petting the Easter Bunny, giving high fives, and few flew kiss and gave hugs before having to let the next in line get their chance. From motorcycles to merchandise to the Easter Bunny, there was something for the whole family at this annual event.
