Reconnect with Neighbors and Friends on this Family Fun Day
Pleasantville Day is returning Saturday May 21. Come meet your old and new neighbors of Pleasantville that have moved here in the last two years. Our goal for Pleasantville Day is a fun time showing casing the unique vibe for our big personality village. Pleasantville Day is a village event that entices residents of all ages for several hours of fun and sun (hopefully!) and to mingle with their neighbors and friends. It takes place on Memorial Plaza from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There will be a Kids Zone with a Velcro wall, gaga, archery, and crafts all thanks to Kiwi Camp.
The adventure zone is for our large activities such as a bungee trampoline, bouncy obstacle course, and more. Open to adults too!
Entertainment will include live band, stilt walker, juggler, my favorite big bubble maker, and crafts.
Aiming for 75+ vendors/booths, a wide assortment of local organizations, and local food vendors including a pizza truck.
We aim to have a free fun experience for all residents. I have been involved since 2016 as a co-organizer, and this year the number of volunteers as co-organizers has doubled to 6. So, I’m hoping our fun level doubles as well. We’re going to be focused on bring out the best of Pleasantville Day to all the residents.
Pleasantville Day is also about philanthropy. In addition to supporting local organizations such as school groups, the tips for the entertainers are collected to donate to a local organization in the area.
In addition to the Village of Pleasantville, Kiwi Country Day Camp sponsors the Kids Zone activities.
Pleasantville Day will be held in place of the Pleasantville Farmers Market, which will return May 28th.
