Starting in mid-May, Downtown Milford Inc. began their In Bloom Program. Large “Hayrack” style baskets were placed on the lampposts of Downtown, brimming with spring and summer flowers in every color. Elevated above the pedestrian traffic, not only will the flowers be more visible, but will keep our sidewalks clear for leisurely strolling. Look for large “Bloom Master” hanging baskets located in various downtown locations, along with a magnificent floral display at the river on Walnut Street. It’s going to be bright, lush display that the whole town will take pride in, all season long.
