Fourth of July 2011

05 Jul

If you’ve been reading along with the blog, you’ve learned about family traditions at Madden’s, Madden’s 4th of July Traditions, and behind the scenes for our 4th of July fireworks. I even posted about the Beach Party  that took place Sunday night. Hours and hours of preparation have led up to this one day. Our staff in all areas of the resort have been working hard non stop! They fed 450 at the cook-out!

Now that we’ve spent all of this time preparing we are a little sad that it is over. We hope you’ve enjoyed your stay with us. Weren’t able to make it this year? Join us next year! We’re taking reservations already.

Below is a photo recap of the events from yesterday’s Fourth of July celebration at Madden’s.

It was tough to get any photo that showed the magnitude of the fireworks. I’ll leave it to your imagination… Join us next year and find out.

Happy Birthday America, Elizabeth
