Why Are Giant Inflatable Bunnies Descending On Uptown Charlotte?


Several massive bunnies have ‘intruded’ the Queen City this week as part of the Queen City’s most ambitious city-wide festival to date.

The giant inflatable glowing bunnies kicked off the 2-week-long ‘Charlotte SHOUT’ festival in the heart of Uptown. They are currently being displayed in ‘The Green’ as part of a world-renowned art installation out of Australia called “Intrude”;

Across Tryon St. is another massive Charlotte SHOUT installation called Impulse, which features equally epic glowing see-saws;

The entire Charlotte SHOUT! festival will feature several other art installations, tons of food, concerts, and other creative events from April 29th through May 11th.

The Charlotte Jazz Festival officially kicked off Charlotte SHOUT! yesterday and will run through May 4th, featuring some of the country’s best jazz performers, including; Wynton Marsalis, Gino Castillo, Camille Thurman, and The Darrell Green Trio.

Charlotte SHOUT! will also feature a glowing stalk art installation in First Ward Park, a pivoting prism installation between 5th and 6th streets, a ‘constellation canopy’ over trade and tryon, and tons of food trucks, cooking demonstrations, and special menus around Uptown.

The massive celebration is the culmination of CLT250, the year-long celebration of Charlotte’s 250th anniversary.
