Milford Art Ramble

91

By Anne Jenkins

Art happenings abound during October in the Milford arts world. One of the highlights will be the opening of the completed murals depicting the town’s interesting history on SE Front Street on Friday, 7 October at 4:30 p.m. Be sure to say a big thank you to the dedicated local artists, spearheaded by the redoubtable Sara Gallagher, who worked so hard over the past few years on this magnificent gift to Milford.

And it’s also that time of year for German Oopah music to liven up beer festivals. Our very own Milford Community Band is playing all over the area – please do support this great group of musicians and go tap your feet in time with them. They play a wide variety of good music from swing to classic jazz and more.

Do try and support as many of the events as you can. It will be enriching and, most of, a lot of fun!
