Firefly kids night

Madison resident Madison Evans as the festival’s eponymous insect showing young townspeople her dance moves.

Rain may have interrupted the first night of Madison’s annual Firefly Festival this year, but the threat of a mild drenching was not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd that took to Town Park to partake in the festivities.


The festival’s first night, Friday, July 28, was designated “Kid’s Night,” and the activities on offer, from face-painting to a gigantic inflatable water slide, were definitely tailored to the under-12 crowd. The children of Madison (and visitors from out of town) could take to the stage to perform as part of an impromptu dance troupe, conjure giant soap bubbles, high-five a juggler on stilts or pet a potbellied pig.


Because children can’t have all the fun, the following evening, christened “Date Night,” catered to grown-ups with live music and dancing.
