The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will host its second annual Easter Bunny Family Fun Day on Saturday, April 15, from noon until 3 p.m. Children of all ages are welcome to come enjoy an Easter egg hunt, a Bunny Hop dance and a contest to win a giant chocolate bunny donated by EMVI Chocolate.
Admission to the event is $5 per person. For an additional $5, participants can enter the Easter Bonnet Contest. Those interested should bring a hat. The Nigra Arts Center will provide all other materials necessary to design a beautiful Easter bonnet.
The Nigra Arts Center is also offering an opportunity for children with special needs to meet with the Sensory Friendly Easter Bunny, who will be stationed nearby in a quiet location. Steps will be taken to reduce sensory triggers and create a more comfortable and subdued environment where children with special needs can meet and take photos with the bunny.
Families with children who have special needs may also be interested in the Nigra Arts Center’s True Colors: An Autism Awareness Celebration on Friday, April 14 from 2-4 p.m. April is Autism Awareness Month, so the Nigra Arts Center is celebrating by exploring how the arts benefit people with autism every day. Representatives from Transitions will man stations that share how this premier Apprenticeship program helps young adults with autism and other learning differences live independent and fulfilling lives. The band Flame will provide live entertainment. This free event is open to children and adults of all ages.
Easter Bunny Family Fun Day is sponsored by Fidelis Care, a provider of health insurance coverage to New York State residents of all ages. For more information about them, visit www.fideliscare.org.
