Rotary Club of Madison invites area families to its second annual SummerPalooza at Madison Children’s Museum (MCM), Saturday, June 14, 2014.

This summer celebration includes free museum admission along with exciting activities and live entertainment just off the Capitol Square, from the curbs of Rotary Centennial Plaza to the creative spaces within MCM. Events run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. with the parade around Capitol Square beginning at noon.

New Orleans brass Mama Digdown’s Brass Band, the Brazillian-style percussionists Handphibians, local kid-powered group Black Star Drum Line, circus performers, and community floats await SummerPalooza families strolling the square.

The Rotary Centennial Plaza entertainment line-up includes children’s favorite Ken Lonnquist and the Kenland Band, James the Magician, and a host of other entertainers.

MCM’s Brand Log Cabin yard, parking lot, and surrounding streets will come alive with visiting farm animals, an obstacle course, and games to play. Make a flag, decorate your bike, put finishing touches on a parade float, and then join the Rotary community parade around Capitol Square to celebrate the start of summer.

SummerPalooza is a partnership between Rotary Club of Madison and Madison Children’s Museum, with support from BMO Harris Bank and Habush, Habush & Rottier, SC. Media partners are Isthmus and Mid-West Family Broadcasting.

Founded in 1980, Madison Children’s Museum (MCM) is an award-winning organization whose hands-on exhibits and programs celebrate and encourage children’s imaginations and the power of play as the cornerstone of learning. MCM is a proud recipient of the 2011 National Medal for Museum Service form the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
