A bright sunny Saturday found the Easter Bunny in downtown Montello at 1:00 for his annual parade! Hats were decorated and kids and adults alike were set to stroll the downtown and show off the holiday attire. There were even a few well dressed dogs in the group. Local businesses like B&B Country Store, The "Silver-Smith's", Tam Bears and Pattibears Place were outside to add treats to the kids baskets as they marched past. The bunny was so impressed with the turn out and participation ALL the kids won a free ice cream cone. The grown-ups were found going from shop to shop collecting the prize filled eggs. The Garden Center, The Silver-Smith's , Montello Beauty Salon, Granite Falls, Rustic Bar & Grill and Pattibears all had coupons, discounts or freebies inside the eggs. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the day.
The next bake sale will be April 25th at Pattibears and the Silver-Smiths, these proceeds along with those from April 10th will help fund the Montello Daze celebration !

City Wide Garage Sale

May 1st and 2nd will be Montello's City Wide Garage Sale so start looking through those closets and the garage for the treasures you no longer need. This comes at a very good time because right around Mother's Day we have city wide cleanup and anything you can't sell could be taken away at that time. Remember one mans trash is another mans treasure and who knows what you might find!

With Montello Daze on the 2nd we can hope to have lots of campers and visitors from other towns to help snatch up all the treasures for sale. Downtown businesses will also get in on the day and hold sidewalk sales. Shoppers paradise right in Montello !!!!!
