Ashland Town Center to host ‘Sensitive Bunny’ event

April 3, 2019

ASHLAND — Ashland Town Center welcomes children with all spectrums of special needs and their families to attend a sensory-friendly experience on Sunday, April 7, to partake in the time-honored tradition of a magical visit and photos with the Easter Bunny.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. until noon, prior to the center’s opening, to create a more subdued and sensory-friendly experience.

Jaime Bloss, marketing director at Ashland Town Center, said, “Visiting the Easter Bunny is one of the most joyous holiday experiences of the spring season for young children and their families. It’s important to Ashland Town Center that children of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to meet the bunny. Our ‘Sensitive Bunny’ event minimizes traffic and wait times, while subduing music and lights, assuring a sensory-friendly, calming experience for the Tri-State area children.”

Sensitive Bunny is an event for families with children with all spectrums of special needs, providing a more controlled and welcoming environment to visit the bunny photo experience.

Simple adjustments are made to reduce sensory stimuli, including muted lights, music and wait times for the bunny and activity tables.

The event is free to attend. Easter Bunny photo packages will be available for purchase.

Each family or group is asked to RSVP in advance by reserving one ticket. To learn more or to reserve a time, visit https://ashlandtowncenter.com/sensitive-bunny.

Sensitive Bunny is held in partnership with Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the cause, prevention, treatment and cure for autism.
