Independence Day traditionally marks the beginning of the summer season on Madeline Island. The whole community celebrates with a festive parade through La Pointe, ending with a patriotic program on the museum green. Music plays throughout the day on the Museum greens and fireworks light up the night sky over the waters of Lake Superior just off the shores of Madeline Island.
