‘Egg-splosion,’ the annual egg-dying event hosted by Northern Exposure Arts Collective is returning after a 2-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Organizers say the event, which features egg-based crafts and games, usually draws between 300 and 400 people. This year the event’s theme is “Budget Friendly,” with less emphasis on egg-dying and launching due to rising prices for eggs and other groceries.

New to this year, NEAC is asking the community for help in identifying ‘Good Eggs’ in the community, a program they’re calling the ‘Good Egg Hunt.’

“We added a piece before called ‘the good-egg hunt’ where different people in the community can recognize different members who are good eggs,” said Patrick Weber, Artistic Director for NEAC. “Maybe those are the people that go ahead and shovel your walk for free, volunteer on a regular basis at their local food shelf or there is also an organization piece where you can nominate organizations that are doing good in our community.”

NEAC’s goal is to identify 100 ‘good-eggs,’ who will be recognized at Egg-splosion on April 1st, at the Harrison Community Center from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
