On Saturday, April 26 Downtown Milford Inc. (DMI) and Milford Parks and Recreation hosted their 11th Annual Bug & Bud Festival. This year event goers enjoyed over 120 food and merchant vendors, downtown businesses, activities and entertainment. 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.
