Downtown Milford was busy on Friday night as locals filled the streets to enjoy the festivities.  Carolers, horse drawn carriages, and Santa Clause himself were there to celebrate the holiday season with the people of Milford.  Downtown businesses opened their shops late as they donated a percentage of their profits to local charities.  

Minorbird donated 10 percent of their sales to the Diamond Dance Company who performed The Nutcracker at the Milford High School last weekend.  Leigh Nagy, owner of Minorbird, also held a meet and greet with the Sugerplum Fairy and Clara of the performance.

 Eco Chic donated a percentage of their sales to a Milford family whose 2 year old daughter has been recently diagnosed with Leukemia.  Owner of Eco Chic, Teri Carter, has extended the donation period and urges anyone who can donate to please do so.

Entertainment for the night included strolling holiday carolers,  multiple local quartets, music performed by the faculty of the Music School of Delaware and a performance of “Seussical the Musical” at the Riverfront Theatre.  There were free horse drawn carriage rides sponsored by Dave Wilson’s Auction and a chance for children to get their picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. 

The Riverwalk Center for the Arts was open to introduce the “upstairs artists” to the community and show off their new galleries.  The new pilot streetscape project was also on display with new shade trees and tree guards designed to allow greater walking space.
