It’s time for the Milton Fall Fair!
There was a time when the local fall fair was the highlight of the year, a time when country and city folk got together for some fun and friendly competition.
Fall Fairs have a lot of competition these days but they continue to thrive thanks to their unique ability to bring farm life to the city in a way that everyone can enjoy. Where else can you see perfectly groomed calves being proudly paraded by 4-H Club members or Pinterest worthy crafts and baked goods vying for prize ribbons and cash rewards?
With roots reaching back to 1853, the concept of the Milton Fall Fair has remained relatively unchanged despite massive changes in the community and society in general. The annual event has been held on the same 26- acre parcel of land off Robert Street since 1864, when the fair turned a profit of $427.
Nestled in an older residential area, the fairgrounds become a showplace for all things rural for three days every September. It’s a lively celebration featuring traditional fall fair competitions like equestrian events, kids’ pet show, baby contest, truck and tractor pulls and the smashing demolition derby.
The fair runs September 22nd to 24th featuring live bands both Friday and Saturday night!
Town of Milton is hosting a Zumba Party!
This party is to help our local food banks provide much needed food to families. Take the ‘work’ out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Helping our community? Check, check and check.
