There may be snow and wind a-plenty in February but there is still an abundance of good art to enjoy in downtown Milford. Art warms the soul!
And magic certainly brightens the winter … Downtown Milford’s Milford’s Magic Mondays Series has a change of magician for the second show on Monday, February 18. Illusion, music, juggling and deadpan comedy collide in this vaudevillesque spectacle by David Kaplan. Kaplan has performed in Berlin, Paris and all over the world. – and now Milford. A change of magician maybe, but no difference in the quality of the magic and fun for the whole family! For info and online ticket purchase visit http://downtownmilford.org
We’re getting noticed: the Milford Art Stroll is featured on a 2-page spread in the 2013 Kent County Tourism brochure – a big thank you to Cindi Small and her team at Kent County Tourism.
