Meet the Easter Bunny
March 27 - April 20Free
The Bunny Photo Experience is now in full bloom on the lower level in front of Target and runs through April 20th, 2019 at South Hills Village. Kids 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! Now you can reserve your magical moment with Bunny online at www.simonbunny.com.
“We love to hold family-friendly events and we always look forward to watching children have fun with the Bunny at Easter,” said Jennifer Carroll, South Hills Village Director of Marketing and Business Development.
Kids and families can come and have more springtime fun with the Spencer Family YMCA doing Easter-themed crafts and activities at the Easter Eggventure Event on Saturday, April 6th, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the lower level in front of Target. The Easter Bunny himself will make a special appearance!
South Hills Village 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 the Autism Connection of PA and Autism Speaks. Caring Bunny will occur on Sunday, April 7th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. prior to mall opening. Guests can register in advance at simon.com/caringbunny. The South Hills Village Bunny Photo Experience will also share the heart of the Easter Bunny by collecting donations for Autism Speaks throughout the season.
On Sunday, April 7th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., 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 (specific elements or aesthetics may vary):
- Turning off in-mall music, stopping escalators located near the photo set, dimming the lights and shutting down fountains 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 guests during the ‘wait’ period.
