Lined up in their yellow boxes, Peeps® — springtime’s ubiquitous squishy, sugary treats — have hit the stores. Their presence is a sign that the Bedford Free Public Library’s annual Peeps® Diorama Contest is coming soon.

The contest is open to individuals or groups of all ages, with finished dioramas due at the Library by 6 pm on Tuesday, March 14.

Through March 21, the dioramas will be on display at the Library and visitors may vote for their favorites in the “Peep-le’s Choice” awards.

Prizes in several fanciful categories will be presented during a reception at 2:30 pm on March 22. All participants and Peeps® fans are invited to attend.
