caring bunnyThe Auburn Mall has two special Easter Bunny events next weekend.

The Mall will hold a Caring Bunny event on Sunday, March 13 from 9:30 to 10:30am. Caring Bunny offers families that have children with special needs a subdued environment to participate in the Bunny Photo Experience. Caring Bunny has been developed by Simon and is guided byAbilityPath.org, a national online resource hub and special needs community. Over 90 Simon properties will host Caring bunny this season. Promotional assistance for Caring Bunny has been provided by Autism Speaks.

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 the child during the “wait” period to help the child understand what activities will occur during the visit.

The presenting sponsor for the 2016 Bunny Photo Experience is the Gymboree Corporation – including its Gymboree and Crazy 8 clothing brands.

pet bunnyPet Easter Bunny Photo fun will take place on Sunday, March 13th 6:30pm – 7:30pm at Auburn Mall.

Many pet owners view their pet as an integral member of the family and are just as committed to caring for them as their “human” family members. Pet Photo night with the Bunny is hosted after regular mall hours and the set gets an extensive cleaning following the event to remove any potential risk to allergy sufferers. Pre-registration is encouraged. 

*All pets must be leashed or crated*
