Whether you're visiting the Metroplex with your family or live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, there are plenty of opportunities for your kids to meet the Easter Bunny this March and April. From Easter egg hunts to special events at DFW's biggest attractions, don't miss your chance to get a photo of your kids with the Easter Bunny in 2018.
Unfortunately, costumed Easter bunnies are rare in Dallas-Fort Worth, but there are plenty of places for you to get a portrait of your children taken with a live rabbit instead. If you're looking for a great photography studio, there are several in the Metroplex that offer Easter specials.
As Easter falls on April 1 in 2018, some events will take place on weekends in late March, including March 24, and although most of these events are free, getting a photo with the Easter Bunny or a live rabbit will cost extra.
