Milton Historical Society will take part in Milton’s Second Saturdays event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 13, with live music, artists, and vendors. The Lydia B. Cannon Museum, 210 Union St., will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and visitors are encouraged to visit the new Walking into Greatness: Bryan A. Stevenson exhibit. Docent-led exhibit tours are available between 1 and 3 p.m. 

The Milton Historical Society will be a hub for Milton’s Second Saturdays, featuring live music by Connor Filicko with his band, Flick Jams. The free live concert, Blues on the Broadkill, will take place outside the museum, weather permitting. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Director Mary Knight said, “We are so happy to have the very talented Connor Filicko here this month. I have heard a lot about him and am excited to finally get to see him live.”

The Milton Arts Guild will have a featured guest artist, and several local businesses will be on hand with information about their products and services. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of canned goods (no boxed/dry goods) and toiletries such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc., to all Second Saturday events.
