Ghost stories at this week's River Street Wednesdays

The next River Street Wednesdays, a lunch-time city program, will feature Milford ghost stories Aug. 26.

The program begins at noon in front of Milford City Hall.

The City of Milford and Milford Arts Council organized River Street Wednesdays, which take place at noon on the parkette in front of City Hall. This Wednesday’s event is the last of the season.

“The events are eclectic and entertaining, meant to highlight many of the activities and beauty of Milford, as well as create a community place in the heart of our city,” said Paige Miglio, executive director of the Milford Arts Council.

This Wednesday’s event is organized by Spirits of Milford Ghost Walks.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair as well as a picnic lunch.  The downtown area has a number of restaurants where a bag lunch can be purchased, organizers said. Visit the Downtown Milford Business Association at for a list of restaurants and shops.
