Peeps on parade in Johnsburg diorama contest

JOHNSBURG – Peeps, the sugary Easter treat, will star in Johnsburg residents' literary favorites as part of a brand-new diorama contest.

Entries should be a representation of a book or its characters, a pun on a title or made to look by a book cover – and all the characters must be made from Peeps.

They can be dropped off 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday or 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Johnsburg Public Library, 3000 N. Johnsburg Road.

The winner of the Staff Choice award will receive a $50 Barnes & Noble giftcard and winners of the two Peeple's Choice awards, one for teens and adults and the other for children, will receive $25 gift cards.

Every entrant will receive a prize kit, which will include a $5 Riverside Chocolate Factory gift card.

Public voting for the Peeple's Choice award will be held 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Voters will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Riverside Chocolate Factory gift card.
