Swing Into Summer to honor law enforcement
MADISON — This year’s final Swing Into Summer event is today (Thursday) and will feature a special celebration recognizing the Madison Police Department as part of Law Enforcement Appreciation Week.
The event is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Main Street behind the Red Caboose. Parking will be across the street at First Baptist Church of Madison, and Montgomery Street will be closed off.
Amy Cummins, director of Community Partners for the city of Madison, said kids will be able to write thank you notes to the officers during the event and pin to a board that will be given to the Madison Police Department at the end of the night.
“Kids can take pictures with the officers, and the department will have their patrol cars and motorcycles on site to observe and explore,” Cummins said.
Community Bank will be serving free hot dogs along with live music from Travelin Jane. Families are encouraged to bring their blankets and chairs to sit and enjoy food and music, and kids can enjoy train rides, tattoos, crafts, inflatables, games, a petting zoo, Spider-Man, and a mobile library.
