The Easter Bunny may be gone until next year, but there are still plenty of rabbits ready to enjoy a day of their own. Bunfest, which benefits the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, will return after a two-year hiatus April 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Flagler Center in Stuart.
Bunfest is the largest event in the southeastern United States dedicated entirely to critters. Features include a blessing of the rabbits, glamour photos, a kid zone, raffles, a silent auction, and educational seminars.
Admission is $5 for guests older than 10; children ages 10 and younger get in free. The fee for small pets to participate in various activities is $5. Proceeds help support cleaning, feeding, grooming, and caring for the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast’s shelter animals.
“We host the event every year to help raise awareness about our critters and what it takes to give them a hoppy home,” said Sarah Fisher, the humane society’s PR and communications manager.
To adopt a small animal, visit the main shelter in Palm City. For more information about adoptable animals, click here. To learn more about Bunfest, call the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast at (772) 223-8822 or visit the website.
