It was a picture perfect day for our club’s inaugural SummerPalooza event on the Capitol Square!  There was music and entertainment outside of the Madison Children’s Museum and free admission to the museum throughout the day.  A parade started at noon and looped around the Capitol Square.

We had 39 Rotary volunteers and 20 BMO Harris Bank volunteers who helped out during the event.  There were 16 community grant organizations and 14 other groups that participated in our parade.  The Madison Children’s Museum welcomed 3,187 guests inside the museum which is a record number for the museum.

It is estimated that the event drew 4,000 attendees, 300 parade participants, and there were about 2,000 additional people watching the parade on the square.

It was a success on many levels, and we thank Steve Goldberg for chairing the planning committee within our club, and thanks also to all of our volunteers.
