2019 Regatta Parade and Firework Information
We are pleased to announce that participation forms for the 2019 4th of July and Madison
Regatta Parade sponsored by German American Bank are now available. The theme for the
parade this year is ‘Go for Gold’ in honor of Madison hosting the Gold Cup race during the
Madison Regatta. Forms are available on the City of Madison website www.madison-in.gov or
in person at City Hall. This year’s parade will be on Friday, July 5th and begin at 7PM. The
parade route will go from Jefferson Street to Cragmont in historic downtown Madison.
The cost for parade entries is $75.00 to be made payable to the City of Madison with ‘Regatta
Parade’ written in the memo section (this fee will be waved for nonprofit agencies and schools).
Proceeds from the parade fees support the fireworks display on July 6th. The deadline for
parade entries and fees is June 28th and should be mailed to Kim Washer at 1958 N. Ryker’s
Ridge Rd. Madison, IN 47250 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any
questions or concerns about the parade, contact Kim Washer by phone at (812) 599-6635 or by
email at Kimberly.email@example.com
The annual American Legion Post #9 Fireworks Spectacular will take place on Saturday, July 6th
on Madison’s riverfront at dusk. As usual, entrance to the riverfront for the fireworks will be
free, although entry to the Roostertail Music Festival at Bicentennial Park will require a
wristband. Roostertail Music festival areas that will require a wristband include Vaughn Drive
from West Street to Broadway and West Street south of First Street. Wristbands are $25 for
music only, $25 for racing only, or $40 for both for the entire weekend. Donation boxes made
by Madison High School's "Cub Manufacturing" will be placed along Madison’s riverfront the
night of the fireworks in order to help raise funds to keep the fireworks going in the future.
Parade and fireworks sponsorship opportunities are still available. For information, contact
Andrew Forrester at 812-265-8300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
