Big Bunny Invasion at Pinecrest Gardens

This past weekend, we took the kids to Pinecrest Gardens to experience the Big Bunny Invasion by Amanda Parer. It was a fun-filled evening of discovery, arts and crafts and nature — pretty much an instant hit with my kids!

Once there, we walked along the path to the meadow, where we found ourselves in front of five breathtaking 25-foot tall bunny sculptures. It was such a delight! These giant rabbits light up at night, providing the most beautiful backdrop for springtime fun and Instagrammable photos. The kids loved it — they were mesmerized by the grandeur of these show stoppers. We also ran into some of our friends and neighbors, which was such a nice surprise.

Big Bunny Invasion: More than Bunnies

Although the rabbits are certainly the highlight of the event (hence the name Big Bunny Invasion), there is much more entertainment for the family. A dance performance featuring the Pinecrest Dance Project kicked off the event at 6:30 p.m. Then there was Glowga, a yoga class taught on the lawn surrounded by the peace and tranquility of these glowing art installations. We took a walk around the paths, enjoying the gardens and natural surroundings. My oldest loved looking out for turtles, fish and swans.

My youngest daughter wanted to head to the arts and crafts area, where she was excited for the face painting. What made it even more amazing was that Rapunzel herself painted a rainbow on her cheek. The princesses were so nice and sweet, offering photo opportunities for the kids, while they took part in arts and crafts projects. My kids colored a mermaid, created a bunny out of a paper bag, and decorated foam eggs with stickers, gem stones and beads. Our little neighbor took part in the fun, too. All the kids were so entertained, they didn’t want to stop creating! Eventually, we persuaded them to take a break from all the crafting, so we could take a walk down and see the bunnies all lit up one more time.
