On Saturday, November 24 Santa came to town by way of firetruck and was given an official escort by the Milford Police Department. Prior to his arrival visitors were entertained by the First State Harmonettes as they sang Christmas and holiday songs for the families waiting in line to see Santa at his downtown home on Walnut Street.

“This is always such a great event and we are happy to see so many children and families here on such a cold day,” commented Bev French, Chair for the Santa Claus Committee. “All of the hard work is worth it once you see the smiles on the faces of the children.”

The annual Santa Claus House has been a Milford tradition in downtown with photographic records dating back to the 1940s. Last year with the help of countless volunteers, Downtown Milford Inc. and the Santa Claus House Committee were able to provide a brand new house for local children.

“I always say that this is the house that donations built,” commented Ms. French. “It was truly an effort by the entire community.”

Bev and her army of volunteers prepared for Santa’s arrival by cutting, sewing and stuffing 1,300 stockings to hand out to children during the event. Approximately 20 individuals helped cut and sew stockings, 60 volunteers stuffed the stocking and 31 local people were Santa’s elves to help while the house was open.

Santa Claus will be visiting downtown Milford Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between November 24 and December 23. Santa will be available on Fridays from 6:00pm-8:00pm, Saturdays from 11:30am-3:00pm and Sundays from 11:00am-3pm. Santa will depart for the North Pole on Sunday, December 23 to get ready for his trip around the world to deliver presents. Each child will receive a stocking filled with candy, a candy cane, a picture with Santa.
