Downtown Milford Decks the Holidays in Style

Christmas Open House celebrates the season with Dickens-inspired event on Dec. 3

When the cold wind blows and the snow begins falling, the quaint village of Milford is magically transformed into a winter wonderland filled with unique shops and restaurants. On Thursday, Dec. 3, get in the spirit of the season when you are transported in time to Milford’s annual Christmas Open House, a Dickens-inspired celebration, to be held in downtown Milford from 5:45 to 9 p.m.

“Milford is a beautiful downtown destination – especially during the holidays,” said Ann Barnette, executive director of the Milford Downtown Development Authority. “We invite visitors to come to the village to experience an old-fashioned Christmas celebration, while choosing to shop local. Our retailers and restaurants have something for all budgets and tastes.”

Choir groups from the local schools and strolling musicians will walk the streets singing holiday songs throughout the evening and Santa Claus will arrive at 6 p.m. on a fire truck to spread holiday cheer in Center Street Park.

Open House visitors are welcome to bring a canned/dry food donation for local nonprofit, Huron Valley Community Sharing. Upon donation, they will receive a candle that will light the way during the festive holiday caroling.

To top off the night, visitors can check out the unique shops and restaurants located downtown. Many stores will be open until 9 p.m. and will be offering special discounts and refreshments to customers.
