LYNDHURST, Ohio, March 24 (UPI) -- A Lyndhurst, Ohio, family says this will be the last year they create a massive eggshell display for Easter, putting an end to the 55-year-old tradition.

Ron Manolio conceived of Eggshelland 55 years ago and recreated the yard display every Easter, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Sunday. Manolio died at age 82 in August and his family said no one else could do the display the way he did.

Manolio's widow Betty and other family members put up the display for the last time this year.

"Everything comes to an end," Betty Manolio said. "It's 55 years this year -- that's a lot."

Each display has featured about 50,000 shells stuck onto panels and each year has had a different theme.

Previous themes have included Betsy Ross, John Glenn and the Wizard of Oz.

This year, the family created a bunny, a duck, a 45-foot cross and more.

Neighbors said they will be said to see the display go.

"It really has been a joy," said neighbor Al Roberts.
