The Easter Bunny stops in Schuylkill County for its annual tour

Thanks to the non-profit organization Dustin’s Adventureland, the Easter Bunny made his annual tour of Schuylkill County.

For the third year in a row, Dustin’s Adventureland hosted an Easter Bunny tour of Schuylkill County.

Dustin’s Adventureland is a non-profit organization building Schuylkill County’s first special needs playgrounds in Minersville.

The event was launched in 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when families were unable to visit the Easter Bunny. In 2019, before Dustin’s Adventureland formed, they held an Easter egg hunt for kids with special needs. Due to the pandemic, they weren’t able to do the egg hunt, so the Skook Easter Bunny Tour was born.

The tour began Friday “north of the mountain” where the Easter Bunny visited the communities of Shenandoah, Girardville, Ashland and Mahanoy City.

On Saturday, the tour continued through Pottsville, Mount Carbon, Minersville, Palo Alto, Port Carbon, Mechanicsville and Saint Clair.

Easter Bunny escorts varied from parade to parade, with first responders joining in to help.

Donors contributed and helped organize each of the parades.
