  • LYNDHURST -- If you haven't seen it yet, there's still more time. The final year for "Eggshelland" has been extended by a few days.

    A sign in front of the popular Easter attraction declares: "Due to the wintry weather, the display will be up to April 5."

    It was originally slated to end on April 1.

    In its 55th and final year, "Eggshelland" features 21,630 eggshells brightly painted in 24 different colors across Ron and Betty Manolio's front yard.

    The 2013 design is themed to "A Labor of Love," in tribute to Ron Manolio, the creator of "Eggshelland" who passed away last August. His memory is a major part of the display as thousands of eggs have been meticulously placed to form an image in his likeness.

    "Eggshelland," which became the focus of an award-winning documentary, was a family project that started when Ron's mother placed dyed eggshells on bushes in front of her house.

    You can see the free display at 1031 Linden Lane in Lyndhurst, Ohio.
