CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (February 19, 2015) – The Easter Bunny is heading to Corpus Christi, arriving at La Palmera on Tuesday, March 3, with a special breakfast celebration in the morning and a public showing of the animated film, “Hop,” that evening with the Corpus Christi Ride-In Theater.

The breakfast event will be part of the free, monthly Tide Turners Kids Club event held on the upper level near the children’s play area from 10 a.m.-noon. The Easter Bunny arrives at 10:30 a.m. for breakfast with the children, provided by Chick-fil-A. After spending some time with the children at the event, the Easter Bunny will move to his Center Court location.

Tide Turners activities include face painting, arts and crafts, and games. The first 100 Tide Turner members will receive a free goodie bag and there will be drawings for four goodie-filled Easter baskets.

La Palmera has partnered with the Corpus Christi Ride-In Theater for a free public showing of the animated/live-action film, “Hop,” beginning at 6:30 p.m. that evening in the food court, followed by a drawing for a prize-filled Easter basket. Moviegoers are invited to sit in the existing food court seating and the first 100 children will receive a goodie bag.

Russell Brand, James Marsden and Elizabeth Perkins star in the 2011 film about E.B., the Easter Bunny’s teenage son and heir apparent to the Easter Bunny job, who instead encounters some trouble when he runs off to Hollywood with dreams of becoming a drummer in a rock band. The film is rated PG with a running time of 94 minutes.
