Each Easter morning hundreds of Easter egg \"fighters\" gather near an abandoned school near Cherryville in Gaston County for the annual Sugar Hill Easter Egg Fight. It has been going on for at least seventy years, but no one knows how it started. Many think it was brought by early German immigrants to the Gaston area. In 1954, over 1,500 people showed up. The object of the game is this--contestants hold boiled, dyed eggs in their hands, with just the small end exposed; eggs are brought sharply together; the cracked egg goes to the winner.
