Welcome to the Raytown Main Street Association Website 
Bringing life back to our downtown!


On Saturday, April 4, 2015 the Raytown Main Street Association will present the Annual Egg-Extravaganza in Downtown Raytown. Kicking off the festivities at 10:00 a.m. in front of the green space at 62nd St will be the Vintage Car and Truck show. At 11:00 a.m. children and adults alike will want to look for the Easter Bunny as the Raytown Community Parade sets off from City Hall, 10000 East 59 St. This year the parade promises some egg-xtra special entrants, including Clydesdale horses, and the chance to enter a raffle for the goodies inside our giant Easter Egg! Everyone in the community is encouraged not only to attend but also to participate! Online registrations for Parade entries and Vendor booths will be available on March 3. 

Check the Main Street Association website (www.raytownmainstreet.org) or Facebook page for the links. Parade entries are $20.00 and Vendor booths are $35/ $50 for booths with electricity. All vendor fees are tax-deductible as allowed by law since Main Street Association is a 501c3. 
Once the parade reaches the green space, children are invited to enjoy story time with the Mayor inside the Mid-Continent Public Library, 6131 Raytown Road. There will be games, face painting, and other interests for the older kids to enjoy until the Free Community Egg Hunt begins at 1pm. The Easter Bunny will be on hand to preside over the great hunt, which is a favorite of children and parents alike every year. Make sure to take some time to shop the vendor booths, grab some lunch, and watch the Dachshund Dash and Dog Costume Contest too; right before or after the Egg Hunt is a great time to do so.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, the Beautiful Baby Contest will kick off at the Egg-Extravaganza; it is slated to run through May 9 at the Farmer’s Market. To enter, proud parents and grandparents need a current 5x7 photo of the baby with baby’s name and parents name printed on back of photo.  Contest is open to babies 1-24 months. There is a $20.00 Registration Fee for each entry.  1st place winner will receive a gift basket plus $100.  2nd and 3rd place winners will receive gift baskets. A “vote” is .25 cents.
