The City of Madison annually hosts this great community event. City public works employees light up the sky in celebration of Independence Day. Depending upon the calendar, the celebration is usually - but not always - held on July 3 because July 4 is a official city holiday. Check for details.
The City of Madison hosts an annual Christmas parade for the whole community. Community floats and marching bands parade through Downtown Madison in anticipation of the annual lighting of Madison's Great Tree.
