The north Fargo museum held Easter egg hunts on Friday and Saturday.

Nasset said about 890 egg hunters showed up Friday and guessed twice as many arrived on Saturday to scour the museum's lawn for colorful eggs.

When children finished hunting, they exchanged their eggs for prizes. Each egg hunter was given a prize, whether or not they hauled in basketfuls.

"We spent a week stuffing treat bags, so all of the kids get the same amount of treats," said Nasset. "We don't want anybody going away without treats."

Along with the egg hunt, children enjoyed train and carousal rides, egg dyeing, art projects and music activities.

James Brakke, "The Science Guy" as he's known at the museum, demonstrated science "eggs-periments" to event-goers.

"Egg experiments are the most fun to do," said the North Dakota State University pharmacy student, explaining a trick that involves suctioning a hard-boiled egg into a glass bottle using fire.

Though Nasset said the egg hunt is usually the highlight of the day for children, she enjoys watching families have fun with one another.

"My favorite thing is seeing all of the families together, and the generations," Nasset said. "We've got grandpas and grandmas and children, and a lot of first Easters out here. It's wonderful."
