Whether you have Good Friday off, or you just want to get up early and have some fun with us, the annual Easter Keg/Egg Hunt kicks off at 5 a.m. You ready?

We decided to switch things up a bit this year, and we will be hiding these super fun eggs instead of pony kegs this year. Better get your super sleuth powers ready, because they may be a bit harder to spot!

What you're hunting for may be slightly different, but the rules are still the same. Here's a refresher of how the game is played:

  • The hunt officially kicks off at 5am when the Wake Up Crew hits the air, and lasts until all of the 4 eggs have been found. (The picture above shows you what  they look like.)
  • The eggs will be hidden all over the Stateline area. Wherever you can hear our signal is game!
  • To get things started call 815-229-0985, 815-235-0985, or *985 on your Verizon wireless phone and play “hot & cold” with us to determine the egg locations.
  • Inside each egg will be prizes including: Tickets to Country Thunder, tickets to see JoDee Messina at the Egyptian Theater in Dekalb, tickets to the Monster Jam at the BMO Harris Bank Center next weekend, and one will be the “golden keg” containing tickets to see the Zac Brown Band at Wrigley Field on September 11!
  • Once you find an egg, call the number inside it and tell us what you won, and where you found it!
As the hunt progresses we will post clue updates and when and where the eggs have been found here. Be sure to bookmark and share this page now, so we can all be a part of the fun!
Happy Hunting!

A huge thank you to all who played along, and we hope you have a fabulous Easter!
Also, another huge thank you to our super covert egg hiding team who rocked it again this year! We would probably end up in jail if we had to do the hiding ourselves! Of course, for their protection, we cannot reveal their true identities.
