Let's get right to it!
August was a busy month for our downtown! Madison Main Street began planning for fall and winter events. Can you believe the end of 2020 is almost, already here!? We added something new to our schedule in August. On the first Monday of each month, Madison Main Street will be the guest host on the local WORX-FM 96.7 Radio Show. We will be on the air to talk about what's happening downtown, give information about upcoming events, discuss programs or work shops and much more! So tune in the first Monday of each month at 9:00 a.m. (October 5th is the next one)
August Music in the Park was located at Bicentennial Park. The Famous Amy Noel kicked off the evening before The Rumors took the stage. Our sponsor, German American Bank, volunteered to sell waters at the event. As usual, Scoops Ice Cream Shoppe donated popcorn for the evening. Vaugh Drive was busy with people walking the river front and families stopping by to hear the music. All that attended wore masks and social-distance-danced the night away!
Music in the Park
This Friday, September 11th, is the LAST Music in the Park event for 2020. We are excited to announce that R0mant0ast will be our opening band and hit the stage at 6:00 p.m. Next, The Remedies will be our headliner starting around 7:00 p.m. This event has been MOVED to BICENTENNIAL PARK due to COVID-19 to provide more space for social distancing. Bring your blanket or lawn chairs, some bug spray, and your mask and enjoy this FREE event on our Ohio River front. Grab take-out from your favorite downtown restaurant or pick up dinner from one of our vendors at the event. Can't wait to see you there!
