Lamplight Stroll tonight in Downtown Milford

The Downtown Milford Business Association is hosting its 16th annual Lamplight Stroll and invites families, friends and children to a nostalgic holiday event.

Scheduled for Friday, Dec. 1, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Lamplight Stroll is designed to bring members of the community together for an evening of festive yuletide fun. This holiday shopping event will include horse and buggy rides, carolers, a performance from the Cornerstone Christian Adult and Youth Choirs, and a visit from Santa. The 25 participating shops will greet visitors with refreshments and holiday shopping specials.

“Downtown Milford is a storybook setting during the holidays,” said DMBA president Tracy Bonosconi. “We are proud to create an event that makes wonderful memories for members of our community and promotes the unique products and services our businesses offer.”

The DMBA’s mission is to bring attention to the downtown landscape and all the unique amenities it has to offer residents and visitors. Downtown Milford has enjoyed a resurgence of new shops, salons and restaurants along with established local favorites, Bonosconi said.

Lamplight Stroll participants can pick up a Lamplight Passport at the hospitality tent located at 58 River St. on the day of the event. For more information, visit
