With the goal of spreading joy and getting the whole city in on the fun, a Sioux Falls cupcake shop plans to host an Egg Drop scavenger hunt.
Oh My Cupcakes owner Melissa Johnson said she and her “Cupcake Ninjas” have been planning a scavenger hunt involving Easter eggs that’ll go on in Sioux Falls from April 5-9.
The eggs are golden and the prizes vary. The big one is a $100 gift card to Oh My Cupcakes. The eggs will be hidden in local parks around Sioux Falls and clues posted on the business’s Facebook page.
“It was one of those laying in bed at 2 a.m. ideas,” Johnson said, “I’ve always loved Easter egg hunts, but I know that not every family can get to them.”
Since the announcement of the egg hunt, more businesses have shown interest in joining in on the fun. Johnson said the event will try to reach “all four corners” of the city and get everybody involved.
Johnson told the Argus Leader that Silverstar Car Wash will also be participating and some egg hunters may find vouchers for free car washes.
“I would like to shine God’s love and make people smile with cupcakes and joy,” Johnson said.
Those who find the prized golden eggs will also get the opportunity to win an extra prize.
Johnson said people can upload photos to social media after they find an egg with the hashtag #ohmycupcakes. Each account with a photo using that hashtag will be entered in a drawing to win another $100 gift card to Oh My Cupcakes. The drawing will be done on April 11.
