Flashback Friday: Easter egg hunt in 1986


One thing that comes to mind when people think of Easter are easter eggs.

Or more specifically, easter egg hunts. In this week’s Flashback Friday, take a look at a KELOLAND Easter egg hunt in 1986.

Little more than a sack or a bag or basket was necessary.
And you had to love candy.
15,000 candy Easter eggs were spread across the Sioux Empire fairgrounds today for the annual Easter egg hunt.
15,000 candy eggs and an estimated 5,000 people.
The turnout equaled last year’s attendance.
And there were enough eggs to give everyone about 3 each.
“I found 3 eggs under a big clump of grass.”
Some didn’t know what their take was.
“How many?”
“I don’t know.”
This boy wasn’t sure.
With as many people who showed up, parents could do little more than just get out of the way.
“Survived it. Real good.”
One little girl found her way into her supply, ready to share what she had bagged.
Another little guy just didn’t have any to share, he apparently got shut out.
But one way or the other, for some, the day turned out to be one worth remembering.
