City holds Labor Day Celebration

Posted

The City of Madisonville hosted a Labor Day Celebration at Lake Madison Park Saturday in lieu of the annual Fourth of July Celebration, which was postponed in June due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Because of COVID-19, the event was very scaled back to ensure social distancing while still providing an entertaining and enjoyable, family-friendly event,” said Laura Lawrenz, director of marketing and tourism for the city. “From the feedback I have received, the event was enjoyed by all who attended. I would definitely call it a success.”

The event lasted from 4 p.m. until dark and featured an overcast sky above, but the rain held off enough to allow for the scheduled fireworks show.

The Modulation Band, based out of Houston, performed a wide variety of music, including country, pop and jazz. Saturday marked the band’s second time performing in Madisonville.

Attendees had three food vendor options, including Madisonville staples such as Elias Reyes’ Taco Truck and Kona Ice Snow Cones, as well as the addition of Champ_ian Food Truck, based out of Normangee.

Walmart employees occupied the lake house for the duration of the event and administered flu shots to citizens.

Face Fantasy Face Painting with Tammy Smith set up a station for children in attendance, who also frequented the splash pad.
