Celebrate a Yuletide Season of Yesteryear

On Friday, December 3, 2010, from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Downtown Milford, Inc. invites you to enjoy the fun at the 5th Annual Holiday Stroll in historic downtown Milford, Delaware.

 Celebrate a yuletide season of yesteryear with FREE horse-drawn carriage rides, costumed strolling holiday carolers, the Christmas Carol Band, a Christmas Tree Extravaganza, the Delmarva Miniature Horse Club and of course, a visit to Santa’s House.

 Stroll through the decorated three-block downtown district with holiday trimmed store windows and the Mispillion Riverwalk flanked by luminaries. Explore the Milford Museum and stop by the City Hall Open House.  Visit the shops, restaurants, bakery, art galleries and artists’ studios for complimentary hot ciders and chocolates and seasonal treats, giveaways and raffles. Discover that “one-of-a-kind gift” for that special someone this year.

 Traditional entertainment is one of the highlights of the Holiday Stroll – everything from barbershop quartets and female quintets to church choruses and bell ringers and faculty performances at The Music School of Delaware.

 In keeping with the Holiday Stroll tradition, Milford is a “Community of Caring.  Make sure to stop by the Eagle 97.7 Toys for Tots drop off location on Walnut Street.  The vast majority of downtown businesses and non-profits will be accepting nonperishable and monetary donations as well as contributing a percentage of evening retail sales to their favorite charities.

 SNOW or SHINE and FREE of charge, you won’t want to miss an old-fashioned Christmas with Small Town charm this Holiday season!   Come listen to some great music, sing some holiday tunes, meet the Sugarplum Fairy, eat some great food, don your holiday finest, shop local and most important of all – “Stroll!”

 “It’s wonderful that so many businesses and arts organizations, including City Hall and the Milford Museum, will be participating in this year’s event,” said Lorraine J. Dion, Downtown Milford, Inc. Executive Director, “it’s a wonderful opportunity for families to make the Holiday Stroll one of their family holiday traditions.   We are delighted that once again Dave Wilson of Wilson’s Auction has agreed to sponsor the horse-drawn carriage rides and, of course, our thankful to our many volunteers and community partners who make this possible.”
