The Milford Community Parade was originally themed as a Halloween parade as it began 70 years ago under Ed Evans, who was Milford’s Mayor during World War II. In recent history the Gray family has facilitated the event for the past 25 years. With the help of community members, family and friends, James Gray set out to make the parade a unique experience for those attending. Under the direction of Milford Community Parades, Inc., the parade began as a fall holiday celebration and has since evolved into a fall seasonal parade with changing themes. According to Charles Gray, current Parade Chairperson, attendance has reached 30,000 in previous years with the multiple marching bands as the parade’s signature attraction.

In any given year parade goers can listen to between 10 and 20 different bands throughout the evening, including university, high school and community bands. Over the years, the parade has hosted local businesses and non-profit organizations, statewide political figures and even some unique entries including an airplane and an elephant. Businesses and individuals help sponsor the parade annually. Families are encouraged to visit www.milfordparade.com for parade route information, detour information, sponsorship information and more. The parade begins at 6:30pm on October 19. Contributions of all sizes are accepted and can be mailed to MCP,Inc., PO Box 1153, Milford, DE 19963. Contributors in the $100 campaign can also contribute online.
