‘T-Rex Walking Club’ Brings Joy To Their Ferndale Neighborhood [Video]
A group of Elk's Club members in suburban Detroit bring joy to home bound kids by parading every day in costumes.
The two dozen or so members of the Ferndale Elks Club dress in inflatable zebra, bear, polar bear, Hello Kitty, Minion and other costumes before walking and waving to neighbors. The group often plays songs like The Bangles’ ‘Walk Like an Egyptian,’ and ‘Walk the Dinosaur’ by Was (Not Was).
Group member Sarah Ignash told the Associated Press, ''It’s so much fun. Nobody can really see, (because) I have my mask on. And when I walk, I’m just smiling from ear to ear. We do not tell anybody where we’re going to walk, where we’re meeting or the time that we’re going to walk. A lot of us are very large and we have very long tails. So, maintaining social distancing is very easy in these.''
