VICTOR, Mont. – The Easter Bunny rode on horseback through a Montana city Sunday.

The Victor Fire Association had planned an egg hunt for the weekend but had to scrap the event because of the coronavirus pandemic, KECI reported.

However, Gov. Steve Bullock declared the Easter Bunny, and other magical creatures, including the tooth fairy, were deemed essential workers.

So, the bunny still left eggs and candy for children Saturday night. And on Sunday, the bunny hopped on the horse and rode through town.


Residents, still wearing their pajamas, walked onto their porches to wave, KECI reported.

“Happy Easter,” the bunny told KECI. “Smile. There’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
