People enjoy DMI’s first Third Thursday of the year

Downtown Milford Inc.’s first Third Thursday event of the year was a success with many people wandering around Walnut Street, shopping in local stores, enjoying live music and eating at several food trucks.

“We really did kind of put this together at the last minute,” Janne Collins, Executive Director of DMI, said. “I think from the time we decided to start up with Third Thursday until tonight was just 15 days, so we are really happy to see turnout here tonight.”

The theme of the first Third Thursday was “Spring Fling.” Milford Museum offered coloring pages for children depicting the state bug, the ladybug. Irish Rose offered live Irish music in front of the store while rock music played at the other end of the street. Milford Antiques had a booth set up out front offering some of their items for sale while Tax Chicks had a fun giveaway toss game designed for adults and children.

“Heavenly Taste Catering was back by popular demand,” Collins said. “They sell really awesome fried fish among other things, also Top 5 BBQue was busy all night long. Milford Bucs also had a food truck that stayed busy. Downtown restaurants and shops were open late with some great sales going on and many had giveaways. It seemed that everyone who was downtown visited some of the shops while also enjoying a beautiful evening along the Riverwalk.”
