Candlelight Winery Holds Adult Egg Hunt

Nelson Twp. – When folks think of Easter eggs hunts they think of children and their Easter baskets anxiously waiting to find the eggs, but the Easter egg hunt at the Candlelight Winery Saturday night was just a little different. They had eggs and even a few Easter baskets but the folks carrying the baskets and going on the hunt were not children, but adults.

Amanda Conkle, owner of the winery remembered how much fun she had as a kid hunting for eggs and thought why not hold an adult event, which is exactly what they did last Saturday night at the Winery.

The 400 eggs were hidden in the lawn and wooded area around their outdoor patio and in less than a minute the 45 plus adults found all  of them and headed back to the winery to check out their bounty. The prizes ranged from bags of candy to a $100 gift card for Amazon.com. After folks redeemed their eggs for prizes and they were entertained by the sounds of Flamenco Guitarist, Carlos Alberto Calabrese.

Amanda said the hunt was a hit and they had originally planned to only have 50 folks participate. Having 45 was a great first hunt. She expects to make this an annual event.
