Santa Claus is coming to town on December 3: Milford's Annual Tree Lighting
Milford Presents and the Milford Lions Club will host historic Milford Pennsylvania's Annual Tree Lighting on the grounds of the Community House on Saturday December 3rd. The beloved celebration features free hot cocoa and cookies for children of all ages as well as a performance by The Dingman Delaware Middle School Chorus under the direction of Brian Krauss beginning at 4:30 pm. Join locals and visitors alike for the ceremonial countdown and lighting of Milford's Christmas tree at 5:15pm, when a hundred trees lining the downtown streets and the star overlooking Milford will be lit up for the rest of the holiday season in this charming mountain town. As part of the countdown, Santa Claus will arrive on top of Milford Fire Department's Engine 33 with a very cool team of reindeer on motorcycles from the Pike County PA chapter of ABATE.
Many of the Milford's specialty stores and artist galleries will remain open after the event for holiday shopping. Shop local stores this holiday for everything from kayaks to candy, jewelry to home decor - with most stores offering locally made and handcrafted one-of-a-kind gifts. Milford eateries are open into the night, as always, to accommodate dining before and after this fun holiday event.
Don't forget to bring your camera and wish list for Santa as well as your holiday shopping list!
This event is sponsored by Milford Presents, the nonprofit volunteer organization that also produces Milford Music Festival, Toast to Milford and Girls Night Out. For more information about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and the Milford community, please visit www.MilfordPA.us.
