Easter may have the bunny, but Copperas Cove has the rabbit. Dates for this year's Rabbit Fest have been announced for May 13-16.

It's great to see annual events making their way back after a year off due to the pandemic. Copperas Cove is back with Rabbit Fest in Copperas Cove City Park, 1206 W Avenue B.

Rabbit Fest will kick off on Thursday, May 13 and run through Sunday, May 16 with a carnival, food vendors, arts & crafts vendors, live music, and more. Best of all, it's only $5 a carload to get in.

That's some really great fun at a really great price.

There's also some great live music lined up for Rabbit Fest, with Michael Carubelli taking the stage on Friday the 14th at 8pm.
