3rd Annual Skook Easter Bunny Tour to Take Place This April

Dustin's Adventureland is bringing back the Skook Easter Bunny Tour for a third year in a row.

In 2019, before Dustin's Adventureland became an organization, it's members planned Dustin's Special Egg Hunt, which was an egg hunt for children with special needs.

Over 100 kids attended the event and it was a big success.  The organization had planned to hold an egg hunt each year, but then COVID happened.

That didn't stop the group from coming with ideas, which led the Skook Easter Bunny Tour.

In 2020 and 2021, the tour grew longer and longer and last year, the Easter Bunny visited 17 communities across Schuylkill County.

Since COVID is still impacting society, and the fact that many children who attend the egg hunt have compromised immune systems, and Dustin's Adventureland has announced that egg hunt has been cancelled for a third year.

But that means the Easter Bunny will make his third trip around the Skook in 2022.

Dustin's Adventureland is currently looking for sponsors for the communities that the Easter Bunny will visit.  Some of the communities have already received sponsorships.

Any person, group, or organization that would like to sponsor one, please contact Dustins Adventureland through FB or contact Jeff at 570-527-6040.

Sponsorship would be $100 per municipality and that covers the cost of candy that will be tossed. 

The Sponsor's company or family is also invited to join in the tour with a vehicle or magnets can be placed on the lead vehicle. 

Specific dates and times for each of these parades is yet to be determined.

Municipalities that we have received sponsorships from:
  • Pottsville- Fratellos Bistro and Gina Gargano
  • Palo Alto- Uncle Dunkel Rentals
  • Girardville- McDonald's Lunch
  • Shenandoah- Skook News
  • Mahanoy City- Humane Fire Co #1
  • Ashland- Skook News

Sponsorships needed:

Dustin's Adventureland is a non-profit that was organized to eliminate barriers for children that are handicapped or have special needs. The non-profit's mission is to build Schuylkill County's first all-inclusive playground in Minersville that will be specifically designed for these children. 

To date, through donations and fundraising, the group is less than $50,000 from their goal.
