With a little cooperation from Mother Nature, the Golden Egg should be visible by next week, and not buried under a snow bank. A nine-inch snowfall Sunday and Sunday night, the largest of the winter season, left a heavy blanket over the ground gearing up for spring on March 20.
That is the same day the Humboldt/Dakota City Chamber begins its annual Golden Egg hunt. The hunt will continue until Friday, March 29, or until the large Golden Egg is found.
As in past years, the large Golden Egg and four smaller eggs will be hidden on public grounds within the city limits of Humboldt and Dakota City. The lucky person who finds the Golden Egg will be rewarded with $500 in Humboldt/Dakota City Chamber Bucks. The people who find the four smaller eggs will each receive a five-punch pass to the Humboldt Family Aquatic Center and a KHBT T-shirt.
The first clue will be published in the March 20 Humboldt Reminder. Daily clues will be posted in participating Humboldt/Dakota City Chamber businesses. The same clue will be read the following day on radio station KHBT.
