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 !
May 1st and 2nd is the City Wide Garage Sale and May 2nd is MONTELLO DAZE. Food, crafters, family fun and day long music. Sidewalk sales, kids activities and a tagged crappie contest are lined up. Bring the family and join the fun. A great day trip!
