Downtown Milford, Inc. (DMI) and the City of Milford are pleased to announce the events scheduled for the 2020 Holiday Season. In an effort to prevent overcrowding, events have been modified, reduced and in some cases cancelled. COVID courtesies – masks (the merrier, the better), social distancing, etc. – will be in effect for all events.
One of a kind Santa visits will take place from the comfort and safety of vehicles via the drive thru window at the Milford Customer Service Center at 119 S. Walnut Street in downtown Milford. Two separate lines will form: one will enter on SE 2nd St. & Pearl Alley behind the Milford Museum; the other will enter on SE Front Street and Pearl Alley behind the First Presbyterian Church. Watch for traffic elves for help and directions. Santa visits are free – donations are always appreciated – and will occur from Dec. 4 until Dec. 20 on Fridays from 5 pm to 8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm. Santa’s schedule and hints for additional dates and spontaneous events can be found on Facebook here.
Santa will not be able to make his usual grand entrance on Walnut Street, but will schedule multiple roadside appearances throughout the holiday season. He may be joined by Mrs. Claus and some elves too. Check Santa’s Facebook page for these announcements.
A life-sized image of Santa will randomly pop up in local businesses where families can visit and take pictures. Mrs. Claus will post “Flat Santa” clues on Facebook.
Santa & Jingle will also host a pre-recorded reading of ’Twas the Night Before Christmas on Facebook in December.
Santa’s House in Downtown Milford will be decorated for kids of all ages to peek in and see the magic of the season from Thanksgiving until Christmas!
It's truly a community project and you can be a part of it! Sign up to be an elf at the Santa House this season - link coming soon!
Because Downtown Milford, Inc. is a nonprofit organization we totally rely upon support from the entire community for both volunteers and funding in order for us to offer this special experience for our children. If you would like to be a part of this worthwhile project and support our efforts please feel free to call the DMI Office (839-1180).
Memories from 2019!
Sign up to be a Santa Elf! The scope of the 2020 changes has warranted twice as many elves as last year-144 to be exact. We hope the Christmas spirit will find you willing to attend at least one shift, if not multiple shifts, throughout the season. As you will see, we need 6 elves per shift for a total of 12 each day, so grab some friends to join your shift! Thank you for your support!
