Downtown Milford Inc. is currently seeking Arts & Crafts, Food and Not-for Profit Vendor applications for the 10th Annual Bud & Bud Festival, which will be held on Saturday, April 27th.

The Bug & Bud Festival is a celebration of two of Milford’s most cherished symbols, the ladybug and nature. The significance of the ladybug in Delaware is tied to Milford when a local second grade class petitioned the Delaware State Legislature in 1973 to accept the ladybug as the official State Bug. The festival also serves as a celebration of Arbor Day and Milford’s designation as a USA Tree City.

“The Bug & Bud Festival highlights our town motto of river town, art town, hometown by accenting the Mispillion River, showing off our many different local artists and attracting people to our downtown business district,” commented DMI President Irv Ambrose. “We are looking forward to a great year.”

The Mispillion River will be open for fishing, paddle boats and remote control boats.  Bicentennial Park will be full of family activities including pony rides, games, entertainment and great food. Festival highlights include the traditional Ladybug and Tree costumed parade, diverse local entertainment throughout the day, arts & crafts vendors, a Kid’s Korner, a children’s art show and “green-themed” nature related hands-on activities such as seedling tree giveaways.

Vendors who wish to display may contact Downtown Milford Inc. at 302- 839-1180 or email director@downtownmilford.org. Applications will be accepted until April 1, 2013. Information and applications are on the DMI website at downtownmilford.org under the Bug & Bud tab.
