Ottertail egg hunt to be even ‘bigger and better’ this year

After an unexpectedly huge turnout last year, organizers are making sure that there will be plenty of eggs to go around at this year’s Easter Egg Hunt in Ottertail.

“There are over 2,000 eggs this year,” said Lori Field. “We’re making sure people realize it’s bigger and better.”

Field is a member of the Ottertail Business and Community Association, which has planned the egg hunt for the last two years.

This year, she said, they have an added challenge of figuring out how to hide all those eggs – “in umpteen feet of snow.”

In addition to the egg hunt, there will be games like Pin the Tail on the Bunny, an egg toss and more. Kids will have the chance to win some bigger prize baskets.

The Easter Bunny will also be present, for photos with kids.

“We just really want to give to the kids and have something special,” said Field.

The egg hunt will be held at the Ottertail Community Center this Saturday, March 23, starting at 2 p.m.
