The Easter Bunny may be gone until next year, but there are still plenty of bunnies 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 on 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 entirely dedicated to creatures. Features include a bunnies blessing, glamorous photos, kids zone, raffles, silent auction and educational seminars.
Admission is $5 for guests over 10; children 10 and under enter free. The fee for small pets to participate in various activities is $5. Proceeds help clean, feed, groom and care for animals at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast shelter.
“We host the event annually to help raise awareness of our creatures and what it takes to give them a hoppy home,” said Sarah Fisher, public relations and communications manager for the Humane Society.
To adopt a small animal, go to the main shelter in Palm City. For more information on adoptable pets, click here. To learn more about Bunfest, call the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast at (772) 223-8822 or visit website.
