MADISON, NJ -  There may still be snow on the ground but Monday marks the first day of Spring and the The Madison Chamber of Commerce is preparing for the Easter Bunny to bring plenty of candy and toy-filled Easter eggs to the downtown businesses during its annual Easter Fun Fest event on Saturday, April 8 from 11:00a.m. to 12:30p.m.  
 
"Children and their parents are invited to bring their Easter baskets and visit Chamber-member merchants in Madison in order to collect candy and toy-filled eggs," said Karen Giambra The Chamber's Executive Director.
 
The event is free of charge and is sponsored by Madison businesses, Cleaners Advantage and Whole Foods Market. 
 
 
"Whole Foods Market is always excited about participating in events that bring families together. We are really proud and enjoy supporting our local Madison Community," said Margie West, marketing manager of Whole Foods Market.
 
"Children can visit with the roaming Easter Bunny and enter to win a new bicycle donated by Peter Daniele, the proprietor of Rose City Collision. There will also be a "Count the Jelly Beans" contest with additional prizes to be won," adds Giambra.
 
"Cleaners Advantage looks forward to participating in Easter Fun Fest every year," said owner Robbin Salmeri.  "As a family owned business "giving back" to the communities we serve, as well as excellent customer satisfaction, are our number one priorities! We look forward to distributing Easter goodies directly from one of our Delivery Dry Cleaning trucks to all the wonderful families that stroll through downtown Madison."
 
Cleaners Advantage will be handing out Easter treats from their branded white truck and raffling a chance to win free dry cleaning. "Cleaners Advantage picks up and delivers dry cleaning to homes and businesses in Madison, Chatham, Florham Park and the surrounding areas," said Salmeri.
