FOUNTAIN — It's safe to say that magic played a key role at the Fountain Valley Senior Center on Wednesday, with two unicorns dropping by to pay a quick visit to seniors stopping by to pick up their lunches.

While the two unicorns were only present for a couple hours, those dropping by were gifted with smiles, and plenty stopped to pet and snap a quick photo with the majestic creatures.

The event is part of the senior center's ongoing parking lot programming which started near the beginning of September.

The FVSC staff has hosted concerts, impersonators, bingo and has plans for much more in the coming weeks.

"Well after six months," stated Executive Director Jolene Hausman, "the social isolation of COVID is really starting to set in, so we're just trying to expand our programming of what we can do in the parking lot to give seniors something to look forward to weekly."

End of the Rainbow Events were responsible for donating their time and unicorns (miniature horses) for the fun-filled Wednesday afternoon.
