Madison Family
Madison is such a cool city. We love it around here. We live here too and our vision is to create a platform where real parents share real stories and we can all learn from one another. You will get to know real moms doing life right here in our neighborhoods and find information on a wealth of topics – local summer camps, preschools, swim lessons, shops and boutiques, events and experiences as so much more.


  1. For the fourth year in a row, the historic Wisconsin Christmas Carnival is returning to Wisconsin’s premier holiday festival. This year’s festive celebration will feature many new elements for an exciting Christmas light display. There are traditional Christmas displays featuring hundreds of brightly colored lights covering the tree and pathways, along with a festive fun zone featuring inflatable moonwalks and water slides. Children love the colorful, sparkling lights and get-away feel of the Christmas lighting show. And adults have a great time dancing the night away to the festive music played by live bands and DJs.
