AVON LAKE, Ohio — Avon Lake residents are doing something fun to keep the children occupied during the coronavirus pandemic.

Neighbors that live in the Landings will be putting out different stuffed animals to become a zoo for a day.

Participating streets include Armour Road, Spinnaker Drive, Captains Galley Admiral Way and some condos.

The 'zoofari' walk takes place from 10 a.m. until dusk on Friday.

Families will set out their stuffed animals, print a picture of some exotic animals or draw an animal on the sidewalk in chalk, organizer Sara Troyer said.

Troyer said she set up the event to "spread a little light in a time of so much dark."
