Folks Lined Up and Ready to "Hunt"

Saturday’s Mad Dash, uh… I mean the Easter Egg Hunt on the Square, brought in record crowds. Everyone seemed to have a great time collecting easter candy and having photos taken with the Easter Bunny. Attendees also enjoyed climbing on the mini-fire engine and turning on the siren. Thanks to the Decatur Business Association and co-chiars Ron & Kathleen Everett for making this event a success. If you happened to miss it, check out this short film:

Bands can apply by going to the Decatur Business Association website and filling out the Concert Series Application. A CD or a website where the band’s music can be heard is required.
