The first Peter's Hollow Egg Fight happened sometime in the early 1800's. Best estimates state that it was around Easter of 1820. The first egg fight was the result of a dispute between the residents of Rome Hollow and Peters Hollow. The dispute was centered around who's chickens laid the hardest eggs. Starting with a certain amount of eggs, competitors go around and tap the ends of their hardboiled eggs on someone else’s, trying to crack their opponents shell. The egg shells that don’t crack move on throughout the competition until it dwindles down to one winner. Back in the day he said egg fights used to go on long into the night, but the competition has in later days set some limitations. Although the original "Egg Fight" was for area residents, it is now open to the public and is a traditional annual event.
