Easter Eddie


    Eddie Orlowicz, 90-years-young and affectionately known as “The Mayor of The North End of The Island,” is famous for his handmade holiday decorations, putting up for Easter over 60 bunny rabbits cut out of wood.

    “I enjoy decorating and the neighbors like it so I still make them,” says Eddie, who honed his hobby volunteering at The Church of the Ascension.

    To view Eddie’s version of Peter Cottontail hopping down Fort Myers Beach’s bunny trail, go roughly one-half mile south of Bowditch Park and look to the bay side; you can’t miss Easter Eddie’s Easter display!
