Celebrate everything rabbit-related during Bunny Daze, March 26-31

Spring has sprung, and so have the bunnies. Celebrate the furry creatures at Bunny Daze held March 26–31 in Langley. Everyone is invited to Shop Hop throughout town all week and find creative bunny merchandise for sale in shops, just in time for Easter.

On Saturday, March 31, starting at 11 a.m. at Boy and Dog Park, Mayor Tim Callison will make an official proclamation, a special bunny guest will be welcomed, spring flowers and treats will be handed out and everyone is invited to wear their bunny ears.

Then the kid’s Bunny Hunt begins with an abundance of gently-loved stuffed bunnies, hidden in plain view around town, for kids to find and take home.

There are even several hop-scotch courts around town for a bit of bunny-like bounding.

While the overpopulation of domesticated rabbits in town was featured on national and regional news programs a few years back, merchants decided to put a positive spin on this quickly-multiplying issue and began featuring many bunny-themed products— from chocolate bunnies, statuaries, home decor and novelty items to artists-created t-shirts, paintings, sculptures and posters.

The event is sponsored by Langley Main Street Association, wanting to bring some whimsy and humor to the town’s bunny issue. The bunnies are pardoned for the day and kids invited to take a fluffy one home.
