July 3, 2018

Milton Garden Club’s delightful daylilies bloomed in time for the Bring Mayberry Back to Milton event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, July 4! There will be old-fashioned fun for all ages, including a dunk tank, pie baking contest, train rides, relay and sack races, chess matches and more fun for children. Irish Eyes Pub and Restaurant will sponsor the bike decorating contest and bike parade at 11:00 a.m. Grand prizes of two brand new bikes will be awarded to the winners – one each to the best boy and girl entries. All decorated bike contestants must register by 10:45 a.m. at the park gazebo.

The "Milton's Best" Pie Baking Contest has three competitive categories – professional, amateur, and children 12 and under. Bring your favorite Red, White or Blue themed pie to the Hospitality Tent between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. on July 4th. All pies must be made from scratch, prepared in a 9-inch disposable pie pan with a cover, and not require refrigeration. Prizes and certificates will be awarded to the winners.
