With the holiday season behind us, Downtown Milford, Inc. (DMI) hopes to keep the excitement going downtown with a brand new event, Jammin’ January. For the month of January, downtown merchants will offer specials, whether it be fun entertainment, crafts or specialty items.
“It seemed like this holiday season was extra special downtown,” Janne Collins, Executive Director of DMI said. “We thought this was a great way to just keep celebrating the wonderful things we have in our downtown area.”
Merchants are simply asked to reach out to DMI and let them know what they plan to offer throughout the month. The event, special or entertainment will be added to the new DMI activity calendar. This calendar is free and accessible by anyone clicking this link. Once the DMi website has been updated in the next few months, a link will be added for easy access. A card with a QR code is also available in the DMI office to carry in a wallet in order to access the calendar easily while on the go or click on the Event Board link and just save it to your phone screen for easy use.
“There are already several events added to the calendar for the month,” Collins said. “We hope to see it filled with musicians, food specials and more at all of our downtown locations.”
One event coming up for the month is Fiesta de Reyes en Milford at My Sister’s Fault. This event celebrates the traditions of Epiphany on January 6 from 10 AM to 12 PM. It is designed for children aged 5 to 11 with crafts, games, music and storytime. My Sister’s Fault is located at 10 Southwest Front Street in Milford. On Saturday, January 13, the Milford Senior Center will hold a Helping Hands Free Community Event offering free items from clothing to shoes, hair cuts, food and more. The event is from 10 AM until Noon at the Milford Senior Center, 111 Park Avenue and is sponsored by the Milford Advocacy for the Homeless.
Any organization who wishes to add their information to the community calendar can do so by emailing [email protected]. Once approved, the event will be added to the calendar.
