Madeline Island 4thof July Celebration

July 4:   A Full Day of Events:  The Madeline Island 4th of July celebration starts at 10:30 a.m. with a parade that includes entries from firetrucks and ambulances to family reunion marching units.  Following the parade, there is a program on the village green in front of the Madeline Island Museum which includes the band, a choir, group singing of patriotic songs and speeches appropriate to the occasion. This is a not-to-be-missed program and also includes the awarding of all the parade trophies.  Our spectacular fireworks begin at dark, which this far north is almost 10:00 p.m. The light show is synched to music, boats are out floating at anchor in the harbor, and the magic takes over. The fireworks truly are a community effort with fundraising to cover their cost taking place all year long. If you want to be a part of this event, make plans now.  For more information about Madeline Island, please see our website at madelineisland.com, or call the office at 888-475-3386 or 715 -747-2801.
