On Friday, December 4th, Citizens for Milford hosted the First Annual Milford Christmas Tree Lighting in Draper Memorial Park.
An enthusiastic crowd of nearly two hundred Milfordians young and old, including special guest Santa Claus, enjoyed a magical evening of fresh-baked cookies and hot chocolate, joyous holiday carols, and the countdown to the lighting of Milford’s new Christmas Tree. We are incredibly grateful to all the town officials and businesses that helped us lay the foundation for this special new community tradition—particularly all the families and town officials who joined us. Thank you for coming, and we look forward to seeing an even larger crowd next year.
