As a kid, in our family, Easter traditions included a new outfit, new shoes, church, an Easter Egg hunt, and a big leg of lamb dinner, (which my younger sister despised).

During the Easter egg hunt, our mom would keep an eagle eye on us saying "I want to make sure you find them all!" Later, when we discovered the Easter Bunny's secret, we realized the reason she followed us around the house like a drone was that she had forgotten where some of the eggs had been hidden.

Easter is another one of those special times of the year when tradition plays an important role in the lives of Sioux Empire families. This tradition is one you'll want to add to your family calendar - Zion Lutheran's Annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Every year on the Saturday before Easter, families are invited to a special day of remembrance and fun. This year's Easter Egg Hunt -"Walk with Jesus" event is going on Saturday, April 16 beginning at 10 AM at Zion Lutheran Church at 1400 S. Duluth Avenue in Sioux Falls.

This all-ages (from 4 years old & up) event will include a story time, music, and of course the big Easter egg hunt for a ton of candy!

No pre-registration is required, just round up your family and friends and join in the celebration of the season. You bring your Easter enthusiasm and Zion Lutheran will bring the joy, the activities, and the candy.

Iowa Palmer Company's Twin Bing Products

Can you even really claim to live in this part of the country if you've never had a Twin Bing?

WHAT IS A TWIN BING?

"It consists of two round, chewy, cherry-flavored nougats coated with a mixture of chopped peanuts and chocolate. The Twin Bing was introduced in the 1960s," -Wikipedia

Not only has the TB been a staple of the Sioux Empire for over half a decade, but the makers of the classic candy have also infused the unique cherry and chocolate flavor into lots of other things.
