TACOMA, Wash. – March 5, 2018 – Simon’s Tacoma Mall is hosting its annual Easter
celebration festivities, offering families the chance to participate in traditional and unique
seasonal events. Tacoma Mall will be hosting Caring Bunny, The Bunny Photo
Experience, and an exclusive Pet Photo Op. Save time and avoid the line with Bunny by
Appointment! Now you can reserve your magical moment with Bunny online at
The Bunny Photo Experience begins Friday, March 9 and runs through Saturday, March
31 at Tacoma Mall. Families will have the chance to visit with the Bunny and take home a
treasured snapshot of the fun occasion.
“We love to hold family-friendly events and we always look forward to watching children
interact with the Bunny at Easter,” said Rachel Stewart, Director of Marketing and
Business Development at Tacoma Mall.
Tacoma Mall’s Caring Bunny™ Event on Sunday, March 18 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. Over 90 Simon® properties will host the Caring Bunny
this season. Promotional assistance for Caring Bunny has been provided by Autism
Speaks. Many steps are taken to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting
environment for children’s cherished visit with the Bunny, including:
• 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.
Tacoma Mall will also host Spring Fling on Saturday, March 17 from 1 to 2:30 pm in
the JCPenney Court. Come welcome spring with free crafts, activities, and Easter
Bunny photos. In addition, there will be Pet Photos on Sunday, March 25 from 7 to 8 pm
where the Easter Bunny will help you and your pet capture Easter Memories. No
reservation is required and those attending should use the East Mall entrance between
JCPenney and Panera Bread.
