Bunny Run 2018: Recap!

Hello Wizards!

I hope all of you had an amazing Easter. We've been super busy lately, but I finally got around to making this post. The Bunny Run was an amazing event for many different reasons. The main reason was being able to bring the community together. Now, let's talk about a few highlights of the 2018 Bunny Run!

Early Morning
We logged on early in the morning to find early birds aka early bunnies standing around the commons to wait for the eventful day. We had a few dance parties and talked a bit about what we'd do later in the day. It is amazing to see that we have such dedicated wizards in this community that support events like this. I always look forward to talking to everyone who arrives early in the day (and a lot of those same people stay the entire day which is an amazing crazy - if there is such a thing). 

Activities Galore - Stream Started At 12:00 pm CDT
There were a lot of great people who enjoyed the activities that we threw for this event. A few of which were activities, unlike anything that has been done before. We started streaming around Noon that day. We had a Dance Party, Hide & Seek, a Mega Contest, Farmed Nightshade, had a Butterfly Swarm, & Egg Derby for our activities before our main event. We usually didn't have activities of this magnitude for events before October, but it was a change that we wanted to make the events more interactive and fun for everyone.Our awesome community manager gave us a code to giveaway to everyone where everyone could use a Butterfly Swarm Mount and we raided different areas with our butterfly mounts and also took pictures of all of the butterflies. You can view an amazing gif made by Iridian Willowglen below of all of us in the commons using these mounts.

The Bunny Run 
We started running around Wizard City following our Bunny Run Guide which we usually to guide everyone where to go so nobody gets lost. I feel everyone knew exactly where to run this year which was great! It's nice that everyone did watch the guide - as a future notice, be sure to watch the guides that we put out so you know where to run during these events. We also make blog posts that describe what exactly we're going to do during the day before the actual Run Event.

Afterparty - Kaitlyn, Michael & Sarah
After our Run event, we went to the Afterparty houses where our amazing Cohosts, Kaitlyn Soulrider, Michael Wildflame & Sarah Skystrider. Each of our hosts had their own activities at their houses. Kaitlyn had a Scavenger Hunt, Michael had Housing Games & PvP and Sarah had an amazing Maze! The awesome thing about each house was that prizes were given away - even packs that were made by our awesome community manager that had quite a few awesome prizes included. The Afterparties were great to attend for those who were not able to make it to our activities or the Bunny Run itself. Thank you to our amazing hosts for hosting great parties! The Bunny Run was a lot of fun!

A Major Thank You - Holiday Mashup Event Announcement 
Thank you all for all of your support. I want to thank all of the amazing streamers that hosted our event on Twitch. You all are great and it's nice that the community stuck together to promote a family-friendly community event. I also want to thank our hosts, port wizards & moderators for their hard work for each event. They do a lot so please do thank them for the hard work that they put into these events. These wouldn't happen if it wasn't for them! Our community manager, Tom Purdue, also helped out a ton by providing amazing codes & support for this event. Thank you so much, Tom, for supporting these events. The last but certainly not least group of people I'd like to thank is YOU. Thank you for your support of these events. Whether you're able to attend or not, your support means the world to me.

We'll always continue bringing this community together for years to come. We'll also improve these events to make them the very best (meaning fun) that they can be. Speaking of events.... I think it's time to announce our next major event... The HOLIDAY MASHUP! What is this Holiday Mashup Event? It'll be something that you won't want to miss out on. We're going to work even harder on this event. We'll see you in July (maybe before if you attend other small events) at the Holiday Mashup. Keep an eye out because more information about this event will be provided over the next few months! Enjoy this wonderful graphic made by the one and only Autumn Dreamwalker:
