Wadena Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Shirley Uselman will be blowing the whistle at 1 p.m. sharp Saturday, April 3, at Toby's Hill to start the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

When the whistle blows an estimated 600 children from ages 1-10 will begin to pluck 13,000 plastic candy-filled eggs from three different locations near the hill, which is located in the Wadena Softball Recreation Complex and on the corner of Second Street Southwest and Olmsted Avenue.

The kids will hunt by 1-3, 4-6 and 7-10 age groups.

"I blow the whistle at 1 and by five after 1, 13,000 eggs are gone," Uselman said.
