2019 Teen Easter Egg Hunt

The Easter Bunny will be busy hiding eggs in Pleasantville, just for teens, starting Monday, April 15th and hiding more everyday until Saturday!

He knows they want more than just candy filled eggs, so this year’s prizes include gift cards from Checkerboard, Smokey Row, Casey’s, Pleasantville Booster Club, Chamber Bucks, and more!

Mr. Bunny also knows how smart the teens in Pleasantville are, so he always makes these eggs a little harder to find. You’ll really have to hunt for these eggs hidden around town.

To get started, you have to let us know you want to play.
