Business Expo & Kids Day 2019 pulls in to Madison Depot on Saturday, July 27th at the Hogan YMCA from 10:00am to 2:00pm. All aboard for a day of family fun and celebration of Madison!
The theme this year is Madison Depot 1869 in honor of our City’s 150th birthday! There will be 60+ booths representing varied area businesses at this Chamber signature event; visit each booth and learn more about the amazing goods and services our area offers! LifeSouth’s Bloodmobile will be on-site as well as the Madison Hospital Mobile Unit with free health screenings.
Loads of Activities for the Kids! Kids will enjoy FREE activities include face painting, balloon animals, bounce house, games, prizes and more! Ride the trackless train around the outside attractions. Tour the HEMSI ambulance and Madison fire truck, as well as Madison Fire and Rescue’s Virtual Reality Trailer. Visit with SARTEC’s highly-trained rescue dogs too.
Don't call FOWL! To honor the past, there will be a mini reenactment of one of Madison’s most interesting historical activities. In the early 1930s, Humphreys-Hughes Drug Store would annually release chickens from the top of the building to the crowd below. People came from miles around to try and catch the birds and the merchandise coupons attached to their legs! At noon, three dozen rubber chickens will be released from the Madison Fire Department’s bucket with various gift cards attached to their legs – up to a $25 value!
