Bunny Rock 5K
A scenic view of Lake Michigan. Wailing guitar licks. A mob of human-sized Easter bunnies. Participants have plenty of reasons to keep running along the Bunny Rock 5K's course through Veterans Park. Jams and ballads by '80s rock bands fill the air along the Oak Leaf Trail to boost racers’ spirits and safeguard audiences from the ethereal humming of Mozart’s ghost. Runners can get into the Easter spirit by either creating their own original costume or slipping on a pair of sunglasses and plush bunny ears provided in their race packet. After all runners cross the finish line, race coordinators award medals to the fastest three contestants and bestow a special award to the racer or group with the most creative bunny costume. Other race entertainment includes an Easter-egg hunt for ages 2–8 with more than 3,000 candy-filled eggs, a live petting zoo, and opportunities to snap a photo with the Easter Bunny himself.
