I'm sure most of us knew this announcement was coming, but now it's confirmed; there will be no Easter Bunny at the CherryVale Mall this year.

I know a lot of parents treasure their kids' yearly pictures with the Easter Bunny and that they display them proudly around their home during the Easter season, so if you're feeling a bit bummed about this news, don't worry, all hope is not lost.

You family can still get a picture VIRTUALLY with the Easter Bunny this year, but it won't be a one-on-one virtual experience like what was offered with Santa Claus in 2020.

According to shopcherryvalemall.com;

Celebrate Easter with My Photo which allows families and friends who may not be able to visit the Easter Bunny in person this season to continue the annual holiday tradition from the comfort of their own homes.


For just $19.99, upload personal images and watch family, friends, pets – past or present – instantly appear in holiday photography. Create custom holiday photography to make greeting cards, to print and display, or to share on social media.

Starting today, March 17th, CherryVale Mall will also have a Spring photo booth set up that your family can come take pictures at for FREE. There's no need to book a session or appointment to take pictures at it, just bring your family to Center Court of the CherryVale Mall and start snapping!  FYI, the Spring photo booth will be set up at Center Court through April 16, 2021, so you have plenty of time to get the fam dolled up and head out there.
