TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — More than a week after Easter, there’s still one mythical creature hopping around a Florida neighborhood trying to spread happiness.
Corey Jurgensen, 40, donned a 7-foot tall inflatable unicorn costume to jog, jump and dance around the streets near her Tampa home last week in an effort to cheer up neighbors stuck indoors amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Tampa Bay Times reported.
Jurgensen originally purchased the inflatable for Halloween, but gave it a new life on March 21 when a friend from Washington saw a similar act on social media and challenged Jurgensen to suit up and show hers off.
