It’s that wonderful time of year again – the 6th Annual Holiday Stroll. Join the fun on Friday, December 2, 2011, from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., in historic downtown Milford, Del. You’re invited to celebrate an old-fashioned yuletide season with FREE horse-drawn carriage rides, costumed strolling holiday carolers, The Christmas Carol Band, a Community Christmas Tree Lighting, the Delmarva Miniature Horse Club, a Christmas Tree Extravaganza and of course, a visit to Santa’s House. All the fun of the season brought to you by Downtown Milford, Inc. (DMI) – pick up a map at the DMI table on Park Ave.
Stroll the decorated three-block downtown district with holiday trimmed store windows. 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 cider and chocolates and seasonal treats, giveaways and raffles. Discover that ”one-of-a-kind gift” for someone special this year.
Traditional entertainment is one of the highlights of the Holiday Stroll- everything from barbershop quartets, bands, bell ringers, young carolers and faculty /student performances at the Music School of Delaware. After the Stoll, visit the Riverfront Theatre for a Second Street Players performance of “Humbug”.
In keeping with the Holiday Stroll traditions, Milford is a “Community of Caring”. The vast majority of downtown businesses and non-profits will be accepting nonperishable and monetary donations to their favorite charities.
