This is one of those rare times that I can say that I have never seen anything like this before.

FULL BUNNY CONTACT: A TWISTED EASTER-WEEKEND FESTIVAL AND EXTREME EGG HUNT!
WHERE NEW YORKERS WILL BE PITTED AGAINST BIG, BAD BUNNIES…FOR PRIZES!
THURSDAY, APRIL 17 – SUNDAY, APRIL 20, 2014
AT THE CLEMENTE SOTO VELEZ CULTURAL CENTER
(107 Suffolk Street, NYC)
(New York, NY) – The biggest, baddest bunnies New York has ever seen will descend upon Manhattan this spring, for a cage battle like no other. Timothy Haskell, creator of New York’s most horrifying haunted house, NIGHTMARE, has announced plans for FULL BUNNY CONTACT, a weekend-long Easter festival with a decidedly twisted and whimsical take on the traditional spring fair. Wander the grounds and participate in games and activities with a main event that pits New Yorkers against hardcore bunnies in an Easter egg hunt for the ages. FULL BUNNY CONTACT features a midway, game booths, food trucks, a DJ, live entertainment and will run April 17th – 20th at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street (between Rivington and Delancey Sts.) on Manhattan’s lower east side. www.fullbunnycontact.com
Games inspired by the Easter holiday have been cranked into insane overdrive. In the main event, FULL BUNNY CONTACT, patrons are locked in a 16’ X 20’ steel cage, to test their wits against three massive, highly competitive Easter bunnies and a shot clock, all trying to keep you from collecting eggs filled with cash and prizes.
The four-day festival features dozens of game booths that get the adrenaline pumping including a dunk tank, “Shoot The Peep,” “Duck Like Rabbits,” “The Keister Bunny,” “E.S.PEASTER Island,” “Egg Putt,” “Hare-y Up” and more. FBC will also have food trucks and an on-site bar.
“This is pure, silly, fun with an element of sport,” says creator Timothy Haskell. “A four day celebration where you can race an actual rabbit while wearing a giant tortoise shell, or pull candy right out of the Easter bunnies butt, or show off your flag football moves as you try in vain to collect Easter eggs. New Yorkers love to celebrate holidays and FBC combines the familiar with the extreme.”
The Psycho Clan team consists of Paul Smithyman (production designer), David Hinkle (art director), John Harlacher (co-director) and Timothy Haskell (co-director). Producers of FULL BUNNY CONTACT are Daniel Demello and Nathaniel Nowak (Lug Nut Entertainment).
Admission to FULL BUNNY CONTACT is $20 – $60 and available at www.fullbunnycontact.com or at the box office.
