Bike riding Easter Bunny brings smiles to West Knoxville neighborhood

Easter may be a week away, but it seems the Easter Bunny decided to make an early visit to Knoxville.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn — Easter may be a week away, but it seems the Easter Bunny decided to make an early visit to Knoxville. 

It also appears he decided that hopping was just too tiring and decided to ride his bike instead.

Or it could just be West Knoxville resident Barry Hawkins looking to cheer up his neighbors during this time of isolation and social distancing.

Barry said he just wanted to put smiles on people's faces so bicycled around in the suit and said hello.

His wife Anna was along for the journey to snap some pictures and take some video.
