Milford Community Parade 2020 cancelled

 
On Wednesday, August 12, 2020, the Milford Parade Committee held a meeting and voted to cancel the 2020 Milford Community Parade. 
 
“This saddens the committee’s heart deeply as we know it will be missed,” states Committee Chairperson, Charles Gray. “This year has been an unusual one, to say the least. Our decision was based upon the Governor’s guidance issued to the public for large gatherings as of this meeting date. Our hope was we would be in Phase Three in July so we could successfully move forward. Without a definitive outlook for future guidelines in October, we cannot expect our community to take a health risk, continue to have our partners in a “wait and see” environment, and ask civic groups, families and businesses to invest in floats and decorations/costumes without ample time to plan. We look forward to planning the 2021 parade with enthusiasm and community spirit like no other experienced before.”
 
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 over 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.
