The Easter bunny will hop into Madison on Saturday, March 24 with plenty of candy and toy-filled Easter eggs for local kids as part of the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce Easter Fun Fest.

Children and parents are invited to bring along their Easter baskets and collect festive treats from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Chamber member businesses. Look for balloons displayed outside participating businesses in the downtown area.

“This annual event brings more families to town each year,” said Karen Giambra, executive director of the Chamber. “It's a Madison tradition and a welcomed event to kick off the spring season,”

All participants can enter to win a new bicycle donated by Peter Daniele, owner of Rose City Collision at 291 Main St. A “count the jelly beans contest” will award additional prizes.
