Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations, is hosting its annual Easter celebration festivities at West Town Mall, offering families the chance to participate in traditional and special seasonal events. The Bunny Photo Experience begins Friday, March 20 and runs through Saturday, April 11 in front of J.C. Penney. Kids will have the chance to visit with the Bunny and take home a treasured snapshot of the fun occasion.
Save time and avoid the line with the Bunny’s FastPass! Families can reserve an appointment with Bunny online at bit.ly/WTMBunnyPhotos.
“We love to hold family-friendly events and we always look forward to watching children have fun with the Bunny at Easter,” said Kippy Price at West Town Mall.
West Town Mall also provides an opportunity for people with all spectrums of special needs and their families to enjoy this time-honored holiday tradition through a sensory-friendly Caring Bunny event in association with Autism Speaks. Caring Bunny will occur on Sunday, March 29 from 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Guests can register in advance at bit.ly/WTMCaringBunny. Caring Bunny will be located in front of J.C. Penney. The West Town Mall Bunny Photo Experience will also share the heart of the Easter Bunny by collecting donations for Autism Speaks throughout the season.
Many steps will be taken to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting environment for children’s cherished visit with the Bunny. The subdued environment is likely to include:
- Turning off in-mall music and dimming the lights.
- Eliminating queue lines through the use of a numbering system whereby guests approach the set when their number is called.
- Special activities geared toward the needs of guests during the ‘wait’ period.
Finally, the four-legged family members will have the chance to visit the Bunny on Sunday, April 5 from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. Pet photos with the Easter Bunny will take place at the photo set near J.C Penney. Reservations are not required for this event.
