With families enjoying the sunshine before the craziness, the great Wadena Easter egg hunt wrapped up in just under eight minutes.

The 65 degree afternoon even included a visit from the Easter bunny and 2019 Miss Wadena Courtny Warren.

Over 14,000 eggs were in place at the Wadena softball field for three age groups to enjoy on April 3, 2021.
