Huronia Museum hosted its 9th annual Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt in partnership with the Midland Lions Club on Easter Saturday, April 20th.
Staff and volunteers “hid” over 1000 glow in the dark eggs for eager hunters to find around the black-lit museum. It may look easy but not if you’re looking for a set of five, sequentially-numbered ones! That is a lot of eggs to search!
