Downtown Madison's Central Business Improvement District added 13 new lighted activity areas and seven community partner light displays this year. These lights, along with the traditional 100 snowflake pole lights that decorate State Street and the lights of other area businesses, create a more festive holiday vibe downtown. The displays were lit for the first time on Nov. 18 and will remain through Jan. 7, 2018.
