LYNDHURST, Ohio – It’s been an Easter tradition in Cleveland for over 55 years: the massive Easter egg display put on by Ron Manolio and his family, known as Eggshelland.
For decades, the 18,000 hand-painted eggs of Eggshelland appeared each year in the Manolio family’s front yard in Lyndhurst. It became an Easter destination for generation of families. But after Ron’s death two years ago , the family announced that the tradition would be ending. That’s when the Euclid Beach Boys, a local preservation group, stepped in and took it over. Last year, the display was held at a Lyndhurst Park, but this year, it has moved indoors to Legacy Village, which is helping to sponsor the display. You can find it in the store across from Crate and Barrel and next to Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
