Friday Frolic Is For Kids!
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.

Crazy For You @ The Plaza Arts Center
Jul 27 @ 7:00 pm – Jul 29 @ 2:00 pm
Crazy For You @ The Plaza Arts Center

A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker.  Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

Saturday ‘Date Night’ Concert
On Saturday evening, join us as we host a ‘date night,’ in Town Park.   This is a ticketed event, tickets are $10 on Saturday, kids 13 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 free of charge and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you don’t feel like sitting on the lawn this time around, reserve a Gazebo terrace table and treat your guests to take-out from our nearby downtown eateries. A Gazebo table is $85 and includes four concert tickets. Each table comes with four chairs, with room for two ‘bring your own’ chairs, a lighted umbrella and a cooler of ice to keep your beverages chilly. Tables can be reserved through Madison Main Street at (706) 342-1251 x208 or email.
