Madisonville’s First Annual Mad City Fall Fest last Saturday brought out massive crowds, great weather, and a variety of activities to enjoy.
Madisonville Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation and the Hopkins County Fiscal Court as co-applicants were awarded a $1.068 million grant to fund the renovation, equipping and programming of a 7,000-square foot building at 130 N. Seminary Street to help local entrepreneurs, especially those workers and families displaced by coal industry changes, establish their new businesses.
With the 2017 season of Friday Night Live ending in September, many have asked what the City of Madisonville has planned for the fall and the answer did not disappoint. Two events, the Mad City Fall Fest and the Mad City Kidapalooza, were recently announced.
Mayor David Jackson hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony last Friday to celebrate the reopening of the Madisonville City Park playground.
Local first responders have volunteered time to a non-profit organization that provides shoes and socks for underprivileged children.
With dry weather upon us, the final steps to completion of the Madisonville City Park renovation are underway.
