Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint partners with FairyDust Faces every Wednesday not only for pizza, but to bring fun to families as they enjoyed their food.

Uncle Maddio’s is not your ordinary pizza joint, it’s a family eatery. It has been open in the Tallahassee community for two years and is looking to expand.Every Wednesday, FairyDust Faces a body painting company, also located throughout the Leon County area, transforms children into their favorite character.

Jessica Kennect has been eating at Maddio’s since it opened two years ago. She brings her daughter who loves the face painting and balloons.

“I come to Maddio’s once a week and this is only my second time coming on a Wednesday with my daughter,” said Kennect. "She just loves it.”

Uncle Maddio’s was filled with happy children who were waiting in line to get their faces painted.

Alisha Young said she frequently comes to Maddio’s on Wednesday with her two children.

“My kids enjoy the face painting; it makes family time more fun,” said Young.

Laura McGraw, an employee at Uncle Maddio’s, help put this event together. Uncle Maddio’s were looking to make eating more family oriented.

“We realized that a lot of families with kids come in," said McGraw. "We thought of ways that the kids wouldn’t have to wait impatiently for their food."

 Uncle Maddio’s brought Karen Mercer, the owner of FairyDust Faces to cater their one year anniversary and decided to bring her back. 

"Her interaction with the children was amazing, so we decided to bring Karen back," McGraw added. "The kids just love her."

This event was filled with balloon animals, face painting and delicious pizza. 

If you are unable to make it on Wednesday, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint offers a free children's art camp every Saturday morning starting at 11 a.m.
