JOIN RANGER David DeVault at 10 a.m. Saturday for a mile-long nature hike along the B&A Trail Park, and you might catch an unusual sight: a rabbit sporting a pair of Nikes.
Consider it an early sign of spring -- not only at the park, but at stores and malls, even a YWCA breakfast -- as the Easter Bunny makes the rounds ahead of the holiday.
For details on the nature walk, call the park office at 410-222-6244.
Other opportunities to catch the costumed creature will arise during the next weeks as the Easter Bunny appears at various spots along the trail to pose for pictures with children.
The bunny will also attend other events.
The Easter Bunny will appear for breakfast with youngsters from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. March 27 at the YWCA in Arnold.
Stories, games and crafts will be offered. Admission is $6 per child and $4 per adult, with proceeds going to the YWCA.
The bunny and his Severna Park Jaycees helpers will hold their annual Easter egg hunt on March 27 at the Jaycee Community Center in Kinder Farm Park. Register at noon.
Face painting, games, crafts and refreshments are on the program. Donations are welcomed.
Gospel singers, cheerleaders and Irish dancers will be among the attractions March 27 in a spring celebration at Park Plaza sponsored by the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce.
The Voices of Zion Gospel Choir from Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church, the Green Hornet All Star Cheerleaders and the Innis Na Glas Irish Dancers, along with members of the Talent Machine Inc. and the Benfield Elementary School Chorus, will perform.
The event will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Easter Bunny will be there for photos until 6 p.m.
Bring your bicycle to the B&A Trail Park headquarters on Earleigh Heights Road between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. March 27 for Bike Safety Day.
From 10 a.m. to 10: 50 a.m., Pedal Pushers' bike experts will be on hand to help tune up bikes for spring riding.
From 11 a.m. to 11: 30 a.m., you'll learn how to choose and wear a helmet.
From noon to 2 p.m., county police will register bikes -- improving chances that stolen ones will get back to their owners. An adult with a valid driver's license must be present to register a bike.
You also can learn about the park's Trail Blazer program for volunteers.
