It was 1976 and Rolling Acres was bicentennial crazy. Now was the time for the All-American “Grand Opening ’76” to help celebrate the continuing growth at the mall. Sears, Penny’s and fifty other fine merchants were open and ready to offer many goods and services. There was an exact replica of the Liberty Bell in the East Court, the main entrance. And in the West Court you could find none other than Rolling Acres very own Bicentennial Easter Bunny. Dressed in red, white and blue and just waiting to take pictures with all the little ones.
Honestly if I could make one Easter wish, I’d wish with all my might that I could be there. To see the first Easter at Rolling Acres Mall. Instead I can spread some Easter cheer by sharing with you a few pictures we acquired along with a wonderful walk through of Rolling Acres Mall that you can find here. That promotional video is from 2003 but the pictures hint towards Easters which took place sometime in the 1990’s. Perhaps a lot less grandiose than their first Easter, these pictures do give you a nice glimpse into the last moderately good years at this mall. And without further ado…

This little fellow just couldn’t wait.
Wonder what’s the light for?
You drive that train kid.
I can’t stop staring at that balloon bunny staring at that lady.
Why is the only one interested in the puppet show all the way in the back?
Thank you every bunny for scrolling through the Rolling Acres Easter Picture Eggs-travaganza. Be sure to scroll through again so you don’t miss any part!
