Seems like Downtown Milford is living up to its brand: River Town, Art Town, Home Town.
The “River” obviously references the Mispillion that meanders through the heart of the town, paradoxically separating and joining Kent and Sussex counties.
The banks of the river provide a beautiful setting for countless community activities. Just last night, for example, Milford’s Night Out was held in Bicentennial Park adjacent to the river.
Two upcoming fall festivals, Riverwalk ‘Freedom’ Festival and the new Paddle/ Pedal Festival, obviously include the river as a focal point for celebration.
Art Town. . . there’s no doubt that Milford is becoming an art mecca. A new show, “Some Like It Hot,” opens with a reception Friday evening at the Mispillion Art League Gallery.
Let’s not forget that art is more inclusive than visual artists: Milford has music, live community theater and abundant culinary art.
All this wraps around the Home Town portion of the brand.
Although Night Out’s primary purpose is to create an awareness of and a positive relationship with the local police department and first responders, it’s obviously much more.
The crowd that came out to Bicentennial Park to listen to live music, socialize with friends and neighbors, have some pizza and snacks and enjoy a good time outdoors.
That’s probably a great description of a home-town event.
