The trees are poppin'!
Every tree in Rhydin central has been rainbow-fied by beautiful tissue paper. Tissue paper wrapped around eggs, looped with twine and hung on every budding branch sways like delicate spring itself. Anyone can give a tug on one of the strings connected to one end of the tissue paper to reveal a delicately decorated egg for keeping, and stuffed with sweet treats from the various famous Rhydin candy shoppes!

Dotted beside large walls and sides of businesses are giant blank canvasses. Beside each canvas are actual egg shells cleverly filled with water color or acrylic paints. These egg shells are for anyone to use and actually toss at the giant canvasses to make egg art! Colors are of course, pastel in shades reflecting the riotous colors of spring blooming. Rhydinians are encouraged to make their own 'art' by tossing these eggs onto the canvass and anyone may decide to keep a giant canvass and proudly display it at home near their ice box or magical 'refrigerator.'
