MIAMI COUNTY – Citizens throughout Miami County are encouraged to participate in a record-breaking event. This weekend, thousands of hunters will be searching for millions of eggs hidden throughout the county.
No public space is off limits, as long as it’s within Miami County. The Miami Easter Subcommittee Involving Assemblages and Hunts (MESIAH) will be hiding eggs late Saturday evening. No one knows where they get their eggs from or what they will contain, nor who is part of the subcommittee.
While the organization operates largely in the shadows, MESIAH has put Miami County on the map for nationwide Easter celebrations. This attention has brought a wave of bunny hoppers, a trade name for tourists who visit the hottest Easter destinations every year.
Noted bunny hopper and moderator on bunnyhoppers.forumspace.com Regan Garrison says he’s hoping to find eggs with exotic live animals. “It’s rare, but I have a buddy who was down here last year, and now he has a mini alligator. That would be a pretty sweet get, I could get my cousin to build a big aquarium out in the backyard. I’ve got a huge fenced-in backyard at my place in Scottsdale, and I don’t think my wife would care.”
In years past, there have also been reports of gold coins, poker chips, cigarette butts, diamonds, small children’s toys, hauntingly specific fortunes, hand-drawn pictures, and sometimes nothing in the eggs at all. For many, the thrill doesn’t lie in the reward, but simply in the hunt. However, some local businesses are finding their way to riches through the event.
Visitors at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Tipp City will be greeted with a welcome bag to help them track down eggs. The bag itself is designed to perfectly carry the maximum amount of eggs/sq ft allowed by physics.
Our unpaid interns will be on the scene to track down members of MESIAH in order to get an exclusive interview. If you or someone you know is connected to the secret society, reach out to our team at email@example.com. Stay subscribed to our newsletters for updates on our exclusive interview.
