World's Largest Easter Egg - The Pysanka

Super-sized egg. Worth the 2 minute ride off the highway to see it. Couple of train cars in the park for the kids to run around on if they're getting bored.

World's Largest Easter Egg - The Pysanka

If you drive into Vegreville you can't miss this! The egg is huge. It's really pretty, it rotates, and the detail is over-the-top. It strikes me as kind of funny that some people put this much effort into an Easter Egg, but someone did, and it's something to see. The park is well-maintained and is a nice place to take a break.

World's Largest Easter Egg

A recent trip through Canada shows that our zany neighbors to the north put us to shame when it comes to large roadside wonders. The Vegreville Easter Egg (Pysanka) is not only the civic symbol, it uses a hitherto unknown yet unbelievably useful tiling scheme, as detailed in Paul Hoffman's book, "Archimedes' Revenge: The Joys and Perils of Mathematics," in a chapter titled "Confessions of an Egg Man."
