Madison Easter Fun Fest Draws Families on a Rainy Saturday

MADISON, NJ – A grey, gloomy Saturday didn’t deter youngster in their bright colored raincoats and Easter baskets from visiting downtown stores during the Easter Fun Fest.
Sponsored by the Madison Chamber of Commerce, stores with balloons out front were offering candy and toy-filled Easter Eggs for the 4th annual Fun Fest, held on Saturday, March 31, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  The Easter Bunny appeared in person, making for great photo-ops among the parents.
The Madison Athletic Foundation held a raffle to support the Recreation Turf Complex Project and a jelly bean drawing drew the youngsters. The Madison Bicycle Shop, 14 Kings Road, provided a bicycle for a drawing by Peter Daniele of Rose City Collision, 291 Main Street.
Hair We Are at 17 Park Avenue partnered with New Leaf Consignment, 16 Park Ave., to raffle a real, live bunny.   A giant, eye-catching blown-up bunny could be seen out front. On display were several prize-winning baskets for an additional raffle.

Madison Feeding and Grooming on Main Street was another attraction, not so much for rabbits, but for cuddly kittens.
As the weather gradually cleared, there were plenty of happy youngsters dashing in and  out of stores and filling those Easter baskets.
