At 1:10 p.m. on August 6th, two figures were spotted approaching the red and white booth that was recently installed in Head Lake Park in Haliburton.

One was dressed in red and white, the other in a white rabbit costume.

In an email an anonymous source, who first alerted The Highlander of the event, claimed these two individuals were “Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.”

A passerby said the “Easter Bunny” refused to answer questions when approached and instead distributed a black business card from The Dust Society, linking to a recently published website.

The two figures were spotted cycling out of Head Lake Park and turing on to Maple Avenue in Haliburton Village.

After loading pieces of the booth into a waiting car, both figures took off on bicycles. However, the “Easter Bunny” appeared to steal “Santa’s” bike and pedal in the direction of Maple Avenue. On the bike was a box wrapped in decorative Christmas-themed paper.

Both figures disappeared from sight.

A Kajiji ad, posted this morning, seems to request help dismantling the booth: “Must have long distance running and deconstruction experience. Available today.”

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
