This is going to be a very different Easter than many of us are used to. No traditional sunrise church service, big family meals or Easter egg hunts with tons of excited kids.
A few local groups are still planning to celebrate the holiday with social distancing in mind. Here are the ones we know about so far:
On Saturday, April 4, from 12-4 p.m., Rothchild Catering and Event Rentals will host “The Egg-travagant Easter Drive-Thru,” a free activity that families can enjoy from the comfort of their car. It will be held at Rothchild Catering, 8807 Kingston Pike. Guests will slowly drive through an exhibit tent filled with giant hand-painted decor and lighting and the Easter Bunny will be there, waving from a safe distance.
Corryton Church, located at 7615 Foster Rd. in Corryton, is hosting a drive thru Easter egg hunt on the church campus from March 26-April 5. You will get a check-off list of the eggs and other things to look for from your car, and a goodie bag from the church.
Hearts Way Baptist Church, located at 2810 Middlebrook Pike in Knoxville, will hose a drive-in Easter church service from their parking lot at 11 a.m. on Easter morning, April 12.
