PLEASANTON, Calif. (KRON) — “There’s a need for it. There’s a lot of sadness in the world and sometimes you just have to be the spark of joy.”

Here’s something you don’t see every day — a dancing unicorn!

This one is bringing smiles to the faces of families stuck inside because of the shelter in place.

She has been moving and grooving all over the city of Pleasanton. She said she’s spreading joy, not germs, downtown.

Sometimes she dances alone, but on Thursday — a dinosaur and a hippo joined the Pleasanton unicorn on a sidewalk on Main Street.

“I have about 12 to 14 signs and I change them to say different things,” Gina Marie Woodard said. “Some of them are like ‘spread joy’, ‘be the light’, ‘smiles are contagious’, too. My favorite one is ‘strangest vacation ever.'”
