Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining, entertainment, and mixed-use destinations, is hosting its annual Easter celebration festivities at Dadeland Mall, Miami International Mall and The Falls, offering families the chance to participate in traditional and unique seasonal events.

The Bunny Photo Experience began on Mar. 22 at Dadeland Mall, and starts Apr. 5 at Miami International Mall and The Falls. The bunny is available for photos through Saturday, Apr. 20, in Center Court at all locations. Kids 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 have fun with the Bunny at Easter,” said Carla De Maria, director of Marketing and Business Development at The Falls.
Dadeland Mall, Miami International Mall and The Falls also provide opportunities for people with all spectrums of special needs and their families to enjoy this time-honored holiday tradition through sensory-friendly Caring Bunny events in association with Autism Speaks. Caring Bunny will occur on Sunday, Apr. 7, from 9 to 11 a.m., at Dadeland Mall and Miami International Mall, and on Sunday, Apr. 14, from 9 to 11 a.m., at the Falls prior to mall opening. Guests can register in advance at simon.com/caringbunny. Dadeland Mall, Miami International Mall and The Falls’ Bunny Photo Experience also will share the heart of the Easter Bunny by collecting donations for Autism Speaks throughout the season.
On Sunday, Apr. 7, and Sunday, Apr. 14, from 9 to 11 a.m., 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 guests during the “wait” period.
The popular Pet Photo Nights return to the Easter Bunny Photo Experience at Miami International Mall and
The Falls this year. Many pet owners view their pet as an integral member of the family and are just as committed in caring for their pets as their human family members.
Pet Photo nights are hosted after regular mall closing and the sets get an extensive cleaning following the event to remove any potential risk to allergy sufferers. Pet Photo Night will take place on Sunday, Apr. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Miami International Mall, and from 7 to 9 p.m., at The Falls.
Dadeland Mall invites children to hop on over to the Dining Pavilion for Breakfast with the Easter Bunny.
Taking place Saturday, Mar. 30, from 8 to 10 a.m., guests can share breakfast with the Easter Bunny, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt. To register, visit www.eventbrite.com/e/bunny-breakfast-egg-hunt-tickets-58586958169.
Miami International Mall will host a Bunny Brunch on Saturday, Apr. 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Macy’s Men’s Court. The brunch is a fun event during which kids can enjoy brunch, face painting, arts and crafts, a bunny petting zoo, Easter eggs, and a special appearance by the Easter Bunny.
