Whether real-life or larger-than-life, the Easter Bunny will be ready for his first close-ups this weekend.
Today and Saturday, Strasburg Children at Hamilton Place will offer springtime photos with live bunnies by Barry Aslinger. Strasburg Children is on the lower level of the mall near Dillard's for women. Call 899-7276 for an appointment.
On Saturday, the Easter Bunny hops into Hamilton Place and Northgate Mall to pose for photos through April 23.
At Hamilton Place, the bunny will inhabit a spring garden, provided by Dilbeck Lawn & Landscape Design, on the lower level near the Comcast Stage. Pet photos will be taken between 6 and 9 p.m. Tuesday and April 12 and 19.
At Northgate, the photo set is near Sears. Bunny hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday-Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sundays (with carrot breaks each day).
Kids 12 and younger will receive a free animal mask when they visit the Easter Bunny. Each photo purchase comes with a free one-year subscription to Better Homes & Gardens magazine, while supplies last.
The Easter Bunny will arrive April 8 at Walnut Square in Dalton, Ga.
