Milton hosts July 4 celebration

July 4, 2019

Thousands braved the 90 degree heat, filling Milton Memorial Park to celebrate America’s birthday.

Irish Eyes sponsored the annual Bring Mayberry Back to Milton event, with plenty of old-fashioned family fun. Dunk tanks, train rides, relay races and chess matches complemented  the feature events: the bike parade, bike-decorating contest and pie-baking contest. 

The day featured youngsters in all manner of patriotic garb, including Emerson Marsh, 4, of Hoboken, N.J., who came with a tribute to Captain America. RYAN MAVITY PHOTOS
