The Easter Bunny is Coming to the Civic Center

The Easter Bunny is hopping to the Salem Civic Center to spread some safe holiday cheer at the end of March. The famous furry friend will be in Salem March 27 and 28 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. each day to take socially distant photos with you and your family members for only $10.

The back annex of the complex allows for vehicles to safely enter one side and exit the other while remaining completely protected by the weather. This set-up was used for photos with Santa & Mrs. Clause this past December and it was a huge success.

Families will drive their vehicles into the Salem Civic Center Annex, one at a time, exit their cars and have photos taken in a socially distant manner on the festive holiday set with the Easter Bunny. Each carload can have a maximum of six people and the cost is only $10 per carload.

All current COVID-19 Protocols will be followed, and children will not be able to sit on on the Easter Bunny's lap. Children will be seated on a bench in front. The bench will be sanitized between each family group photo. Masks are required until the photos are taken, at which time, the children can take their masks off.

Photos will be emailed between March 29th – 31st, so you can share them on social media and print for your personal use. Parents and guardians will be allowed to take their own photos, as well.
