Santa Arrives in Downtown Milford

460

With sirens in the air, Santa arrived in downtown Milford riding on a fire truck and escorted by the Milford police on Saturday, November 25. Santa will receive each child and listen to their holiday dreams and wishes every Friday evening 5 to 7:30pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 3pm until December 23.

The annual Santa Claus House has been a Milford tradition in downtown with photographic records dating back to the 1940s. Five years ago, 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, which currently stands on Walnut Street in downtown Milford. All of the materials and hours that were put into building the Santa House were donated by local construction businesses and volunteers.

Every child will receive a picture with Santa and a handmade stockings filled with candy. In addition to providing smiles and joy to local families, the Santa House is also an economic driver as it brings families downtown and encourages them to shop, eat and play local. Within walking distance is several cafes and restaurants, unique specialty shops, art galleries and the Riverfront Theater.
