Always with a downtown Christmas emphasis Madison held it's annual "Light Up Madison" event on the evening of December 3, 2016. Local merchants had their stores and sidewalks decorated for the season. Hundreds of visitors came in to the city to be entertained, shop, and enjoy the sites and sounds of the Christmas season in a rural North Florida environment. The light parade had floats and vehicles sparkling in the cool air of the evening. Four Freedoms Park was make in to a winter wonderland with the gazebo the venue for music.

A big "thank you" to all who worked so hard to make this a wonderful experience for all who attended.
