The play was written by Jamie Mason, and Michael McGuire wrote the score. The play was performed under a tent in Central Park that year and again in 1993.

Give Back Friday

Michigan Community Celebrates The Day After Thanksgiving With A Day Of Charity!

In the last decade, the chaotic shopping atmosphere the day after thanksgiving has slowly inched it’s way backward into our Thanksgiving Day, the holiday where we are giving thanks for what we have. The merchants of Downtown Milford have decided to hold on to the gratitude we feel on Thanksgiving, and pledge to extend that spirit of gratitude by giving back to the community.

When you visit the businesses of downtown Milford on the day after Thanksgiving, you will still find amazing gifts, special sales, and delicious meals at our local eateries, but with a feel-good twist. Many merchants throughout Milford will be giving a percentage of their proceeds on Give Back Friday to a local charity.

Christmas Parade

Saturday, November 28 @ 10:00 am

Christmas Open House

Friday, December 4 @ 6:00 pm

A full evening of Christmas cheer.

Santa Claus is coming to town during Milford’s annual Christmas Open House. A community favorite, the seasonal event brings strolling entertainment, horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday caroling, special promotions and deals at downtown stores and restaurants as well as a highly anticipated visit with Santa Claus in Village Center Mall. The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. when the jolly old man arrives on Main Street aboard a Milford Fire Department fire engine.

Did we say special promotions?
The Christmas Open House is the perfect opportunity to score fabulous holiday deals. Shoppers will find an array of the finest holiday décor, locally-made gifts, coveted women’s items and children’s toys. Whether you’re looking to deck your halls, treat someone special with elegant diamonds, or surprise the kids to a truly unique toy, the one-of-a-kind Village stores have it all.

Dinner’s On Us

Thursday, December 3 @ 5:30 pm
From 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. each Thursday during the holidays, randomly diners are selected to enjoy a meal at one of downtown’s delicious restaurants – on the house!
A few of Santa’s elves representing downtown businesses and community neighbors, will drop into the main street restaurants in downtown Milford and pick up the tabs of unsuspecting patrons – nearly 90 tabs throughout the season – to give back and give thanks to the visitors who make our downtown shopping district and businesses flourish.
This year, the DDA received some $6,000 in donations – primarily from local businesses – to support the program.
