The Madison Chamber of Commerce is preparing to bring the Easter Bunny and plenty of candy and toy-filled Easter eggs to downtown businesses during its 5th Annual Easter Fun Fest on Saturday, March 23 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Children and their parents are encouraged to bring their Easter baskets and visit participating downtown businesses to collect candy and toy-filled eggs. The event is free of charge.
Children can visit with the roaming Easter Bunny and enter to win a new bicycle donated by Peter Daniele of Rose City Collision, 291 Main Street, and provided by the Madison Bicycle Shop, 14 Kings Road.
The Chamber of Commerce will also raffle off special gifts provided by Madison businesses. The gifts will be displayed at the Chamber booth on the corner of Waverly Pl. and Main St.
“This is a fun family event and it shows support of our local businesses.” said Chamber Vice President Peter Daniele of Rose City Collision.
Participating businesses will feature balloons on their doors denoting participation.
This year, the Chamber has invited the Madison High School Interact Club to come and provide face painting for the children. Interact will be collecting donations for their international charity organization, Smile Train, which provides operations for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate.
