Sunset Mall sets Easter Bunny event for families of those with autism or special needs

A visit with the Easter Bunny may not be possible in a loud or busy setting, so Sunset Mall will host an event for those with autism or special needs.

The hustle and bustle of the mall is not always suitable for children and adults on the autism spectrum or with special needs, so Sunset Mall will open its door only to their families for an exclusive event Sunday, March 18. 

After the mall has closed, from 6-8 p.m., a “Bunny Cares” event will allow a special visit and sensory-friendly photo session with the Easter Bunny in an environment that is more subdued.

Those attending must enter the mall at the main entrance. Visits with the Bunny are free, and photos will be available for purchase.

“Special accommodations will be made to support the sensory, physical and developmental needs of this special audience seeking to have their very own photo with the Bunny,” according to a news release.

Because space is limited, families are urged to make reservations at SunsetMall.com/Events or at AutismSpeaks.org/Bunny2018.
