Annual Harry Roberts Memorial Easter Egg Hunt

Harry Roberts began the Chateau Easter Egg Hunt in 1941. Residents of Medora boiled and painted their own eggs and Harry hid them at the Chateau for the children to find on Easter. In Harry’s devoted and fun-loving spirit, we continue the hunt.

Join us in 2023 for the 81st Annual Harry Roberts Memorial Easter Egg Hunt!
