Posted on the City of Framingham’s Parks & Recreation Social meeting today, April 10:
I am sorry to say, there has been a change of plans for my Bunny Hop on the firetruck and I must stay in my burrow this year.
I really want to spread some holiday cheer, so please come back and visit the City of Framingham Parks & Recreation Department Facebook & Instagram pages tomorrow for a special post to wish you and your family a nice holiday!
Hop to see you there!
I will be back next year at the 2021 EGGciting Event in Cushing Memorial Park!
I want to thank the Rousseau Family for their generous offer to help spread some cheer by volunteering their Fire Truck and their time.
The Parks and Recreation staff are concerned for your safety and well-being and want everyone to continue to practice social distancing, wash your hands often, cover your face when out, and most importantly, stay home if you can.
We are all in this together!
