Friday, April 5 through Sunday, April 7
Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 14
Friday, April 19 through Sunday, April 21
Tickets: $5, Children 2 and younger & Members FREE.
Imagine giant 25-foot tall bunnies glowing in Pinecrest Gardens’ meadow right before dusk and into the evening. Add Glow Yoga (Glowga), art activities for kids and live performances, and you have Big Bunny Invasion. This April Pinecrest Gardens is tossing out the traditional “hunt” and replacing it with relaxing weekend evenings where both children and adults can play. Edgy and ephemeral, Big Bunny Invasion is a public light-art installation that blends fine art and community to ignite imaginations while providing the perfect setting for families to unwind and be inspired. This art installation was created by Amanda Parer. Based in Australia, Parer Studio’s work has been displayed in major international public art museums. Guests are encouraged to brush up their selfie skills because the “bunnies” are going to be on everyone’s social media feed. Use #BigBunnyInvationPG. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. each night. There’s entertainment and vendors every night. Check our website for a full schedule of activities.
