Springtime, warm weather and the bunnies have all hopped into Kansas City.
On the first day of spring, one day after a record-setting 87 degree March day, the Country Club Plaza unveiled its Easter Wonderland display of supersized bunnies and other creatures. Also unveiled were a series of bunny-themed springtime banners created by local artist Amy January of FarmDog Studios.
“As a longtime Kansas Citian, I’ve always loved the bunnies,” says January. “I’m excited to be a part of the tradition.”
The menagerie was unveiled just before noon Monday in the Pomona Courtyard outside of the Seasons 52 restaurant at Broadway and Ward Parkway. The bunnies, a KC tradition since the early 1920s, will hold their spots throughout the Plaza until April 23.
