The Easter Jamboree Celebration was
Egg-stravagant at The Village Shops!

Saturday was full of smiles as families near and far came out to The Village Shops’ annual Easter Jamboree. The Village quickly filled with color as children in bright Easter attire gathered, ready to join in the festivities.

Within minutes of the event beginning, the line to visit with the Easter Bunny stretched across the north side of The Village. One by one, children hopped up on the Easter Bunny’s lap to visit and take photos. While waiting on their complimentary emailed and printed copy of the photos, there was another surprise visitor. Mrs. Bunny was alongside the Easter Bunny to visit with all and handout extra little treats to add to the each child’s Easter basket.

The entertainment continued with face painters, balloon twisters, arts and crafts, and an Easter egg hunt. The little faces continually lit up when heading from one entertainment station to the next.

The balloon twisters made Easter ears, pirate swords, princess wands, dogs, and more! The talented face painters painted stroke after stroke, transforming the little boys and girls into princesses, super heroes, and Easter bunnies to match their balloons.

The craft tables had many visitors throughout the afternoon creating bunny ear headbands. Within a few minutes, all that could be seen was a sea of little bunnies hopping over to begin the egg hunt.

Everyone headed from store to store, looking for the Easter Bunny in the window, to collect Easter eggs. Easter baskets of all shapes and sizes began filling to the top, with the little ones peeking in the eggs to see what goodies they had collected.

It was a truly hoppy Easter at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay. Thank you to everyone who joined in on the fun at the 2019 Easter Jamboree. We look forward to seeing you again next year! To view or save your photo with the Easter Bunny, visit
