easter eggsOn Saturday, April 3, Atlantic Station will host its first-ever Easter celebration. Parents, kids and the family pet can hop on over to Central Park to enjoy a day of free festivities and Easter Egg-citement. The afternoon celebration will kick off at 1 p.m. and families can enjoy taking pictures with Atlantic Station’s Easter Bunny and can participate in a one-of-a-kind Peep tossing contest. The event will also feature a pet Easter Egg hunt with egg-shaped doggie-biscuits and “pup” photos with the Easter Bunny.

All proceeds from pictures taken with the Easter Bunny will be donated by Doguroo and Atlantic Station to the Atlanta Humane Society. Attendees will also enjoy face painting, cookie decorating, arts & crafts and complimentary Peeps and other Easter candy favorites. Atlantic Station’s free open-air market will be open for guests of the event to browse unique jewelry, artwork and edibles.

Also during the celebration, Radio Disney will provide free Mary Poppins gifts with $50 and $75 Atlantic Station purchases. And, the Make-A-Wish Foundation will provide shopping discounts to Atlantic Station retailers to benefit their upcoming Walk for Wishes. www.AtlanticStation.com.
