The holiday season was officially kicked off in Milford on Saturday, November 27 with the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in front of City Hall. The event was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The ceremony began with the Milford Central Academy Chorus singing Christmas carols. Those who attended the ceremony were handed sheets to sing along as the choir led them through songs like “Frosty the Snowman,” “Jingle Bells” and more.

Around 5 PM, Santa arrived in a sidecar, joining one of his elves who arrived earlier to entertain the crowd.

“Mayor Archie Campbell was unable to attend tonight as he is out of town,” Vice Mayor Jason James said. “We are very excited to celebrate this evening with this ceremony which kicks off the holiday season in Milford.”

After Councilman James addressed the crowd, Santa and his elf flipped the switch in front of City Hall, lighting the trees and other decorations around the building.
