The Bunny Photo Experience begins Friday, March 2 at 10:00 a.m. and runs through Saturday, March 31 at 9:00 p.m. in Center Court. Kids will have the chance to visit with the Bunny and take home a treasured snapshot of the fun occasion.
The Simon Bunny Photo Experience is again sponsored by GYMBOREE GROUP. The GYMBOREE GROUP is a specialty retailer selling high-quality apparel and accessories for children under the Gymboree, Gymboree Outlet, Janie and Jack, and Crazy 8 brands.
“We love to hold family-friendly events and we always look forward to watching children interact with the Bunny at Easter,” said David Tokey, Marketing Director for Ross Park Mall.
Ross Park Mall will host an Easter Eggstravaganza event and Easter Egg Hunt at the play area on Friday, March 30th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Activities will include crafts, music, a visit from the Easter Bunny and much, much more!
Ross Park Mall’s Caring Bunny™ event will offer families that have children with special needs a subdued environment to participate in the Bunny Photo Experience. Caring Bunny, the largest program of its kind, has been developed by Simon and is guided by AbilityPath.org, a national online resource hub and special needs community. Over 90 Simon® properties will host the Caring Bunny this season. Promotional assistance for Caring Bunny has been provided by Autism Speaks.
On Sunday, March 11 from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in center court, 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 will include:
- Turning off in-mall music, stopping escalators located near the photo set and dimming the lights for the duration of the event.
- 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 the child during the ‘wait’ period to help the child understand what activities will occur during the visit.
