Easter Fun Fest Gathers Families
The Madison Chamber of Commerce held its annual Easter Fun Fest on Sat., March 19. Families gathered in the downtown and enjoyed exchanging greetings and spending time with the Easter Bunny while collecting Easter eggs around town.
Children were given the opportunity to win a Trek Jet Series bicycle donated by Peter Daniele of Rose City Collision and supplied by The Bicycle Store in Florham Park, along with many other donated items.
“This event always brings the community together and this year we welcomed many families from nearby towns,” said Peter Danielle, the Chamber’s Easter Fun Fest chair. “It was wonderful to hear the many compliments our out of town visitors gave about Madison and we hope that these types of events continue to bring new people into our community and to the downtown area.”
The winner of the bicycle was Enzo Leonardis of Madison. In addition to the bicycle, the family received a toy and candy filled Easter basket donated by Walgreens; a beautiful bouquet of flowers arranged by Coviello Brothers; and car wash coupons donated by Ken Maietta, owner of Madison Car Was.
The second prize winner received an Easter basket full of candy and toys also donated by Walgreens.
This year’s jelly bean contest was once again a highlight of the event with the winner receiving a custom gourmet basket donated by our event sponsor Whole Foods Market and car wash coupons donated by the Madison Car Wash. The runner up received an LED Halfmoon fish aquarium and gift certificate donated by Ned Finn, owner of The Madison Pet Shop and a gift bag donated by the Morris Animal Inn in Morristown.
“Each year we have more families come and join us for this fun community event,” said the Madison Chamber’s Executive Director Karen Giambra. “It’s an event we all look forward to each spring.”
