Christmas in Mad CityMADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/30/17) — The city of Madisonville is making preparations for Saturday's “Christmas in Mad City” 10 a.m.-2 p.m. downtown, followed by the Annual Noon Kiwanis Christmas Parade set to begin at 5 p.m.

Weather forecasters predict Saturday temperatures should reach 61 degrees, with a low of 36. Skies are expected to be partly sunny through the afternoon.

Public Relations Director Skylar Phaup said plans for the pre-parade event include bringing back the popular ice skating rink as well as lots of other additions.

There will be live Christmas music, food and shopping vendors, pictures with Santa, carriage rides, face painting and the Warming Cafe — an enclosed, heated area that will feature a few nonprofit organizations selling warm beverages, cookies and seasonal snacks, Phaup stated in a press release.

“Lots of details are still being worked out, but we knew we wanted to have an area of the event where people could go warm up in between their shopping and skating,” Development Director Summer Crick said. “We’ve been working hard to plan community events year around, and we hope that everyone will bundle up and join us for an event that’s fun for everyone.”

Christmas in Mad City is co-sponsored by First United Bank and Trust, the city of Madisonville and Madisonville Forward.

“As always, we love partnering with the city of Madisonville to bring great experiences to the people of the community, said bank president Jason Hawkins. “Christmas in Mad City will be a fun day, officially kicking off the Christmas season in Madisonville.”

“We are so thankful for community partnerships like the one we have with First United Bank and Trust,” Mayor Jackson said in a statement. “With support like this, we are able to make our citizens’ restaurant tax dollars stretch even further and do more for our community.”

The event coincides with the annual Noon Kiwanis Christmas Parade, city officials said. The planning committee hopes the events will be mutually beneficial to one another, drawing an even bigger crowd to both.
