Families, musicians, and fireflies will head to Town Park on the last weekend in July for the Firefly Festival celebrating the end of summer. Once again this year (nine years running!) we’d like to thank our presenting sponsor, Main Street Vet of Madison. For more information about Firefly Fest, click here.
Friday night is the Kid’s Family Frolic from 6:30-8:30 PM! Join us on Friday night for the Family Frolic – it’s “kids’ night” at Firefly. Bring the kids for a night of fun with stilt walkers, music, bubbles, face painters, fun inflatables, creative kids crafts, and family entertainment–all in the park from 6:30-8:30 pm. Sorry, no coolers allowed on Friday night. Feed the kids before you come and we’ll provide an icy treat. This is a ticketed event, kids pay $5 each, parents are free. Your ticket includes all activities within the park! Main Street Vet and HSMC will be on hand with animals, so leashed pets are allowed on Friday–please be sure to clean up after your dog. The Firefly Frolic is a 12 and under event.
Saturday night is Date Night for the adults from 7:00-10:30 PM! On Saturday evening, join us as we host a ‘date night,’ in Town Park. This year Sounds of Motown is back!! The concert is from 7:00–10:30 p.m. (1 1/2 hours longer this year!), with gates opening at 6:00. This is a ticketed event, tickets are $10 on Saturday, kids 12 and under come in for free. Come early to claim your favorite spot on the Great Lawn. Blankets, chairs, and coolers are all welcome on Saturday night–there are no food vendors on site. A limited number of tents will be allowed on Saturday, please call Main Street to reserve your spot. Lawn tent spaces are $25 and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. No pets in the park on Saturday evening (unless service animals).
Don’t forget about the Firefly-Tri Super Sprint hosted by Lake Oconee FCA on July 28th from 7:00 AM-4:00 PM! Race will include 200yd Aquatic Center swim, 7 mile bike ride through historic downtown Madison, and will end in a 2 mile run. All are welcome to participate regardless of age and experience!
