Eagle’s Nest Breaks World Record

As video rolled and shutters snapped, 606 people at Eagle’s Nest Fellowship Church in Milton, Delaware closed out this year’s Easter egg hunt by breaking the world record for the “Most people Dyeing Eggs at One Time.” The previous record of 317 people was set April 23, 2011 at Carowinds Theme Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Guinness World Records® guidelines stipulate that each participant must be equipped with at least one hard-boiled egg and spoon and enough dye to submerge his or her egg. Eggs must be dyed for exactly three minutes and then participants must simultaneously remove their eggs from the dye using their spoons. All eggs must be fully dyed and shown to the Guinness World Records® Adjudicator for approval.

On hand to officiate were Senator Gary Simpson; Ed Kee, Delaware Secretary of Agriculture; and Jack Riddle, of Community Bank. The result of the Saturday, March 31, event will now be sent to Guinness for verification before it can be placed in the 2013 edition of the book.

Eagle’s Nest is a non-denominational church located in Milton, Delaware dedicated to creating an authentic Biblical Community. The record attempt was made as part of the church’s annual Easter egg hunt and family fun day called, “Eggstravaganza” where more than 1,000 people attended this year.
