Summer Fun at Milford's Sidewalk Sale

Posted: Updated:
MILFORD, Mich. - Summer fun will once again fill Milford's downtown streets as Milford's Sidewalk Sales  brings open-air  shopping, live entertainment  and family-friendly activities to the area,  July 11-12. The two-day event is sponsored by the Milford Business Association.

"We're pleased to offer this outdoor summer celebration here in downtown Milford," said Ann Barnette, executive director of the Milford Downtown Development Authority. "Milford's Sidewalk Sales will include exciting festivities for everyone in the community."

Milford merchants will be taking it to the streets! Visitors will enjoy the ease of outdoor shopping and incredible deals from participating retailers along the downtown walkways from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Select retailers will offer up to 75 percent off on apparel, art, jewelry, children's toys and home furnishings at downtown Milford's shops.  

For those 21 years and older looking for some entertainment and a drink, the GetAMPed! beer tent on Center Street Park will be the spot to be!  Drinks will be served from noon to midnight each day and local performers, like Wheelhouse on Friday night and Aaron Vaughn on Saturday night, will perform live from 8 p.m. to midnight.  During the day, local bands will perform in Center Street Park, including Half-Wacked on Friday and Julie Haven and Dan and Erin on Saturday.

The GetAMPed! beer tent is sponsored by Huron Valley Guns and Americus Coney Island. This year's proceeds will benefit the AMP in Central Park project - a community-driven initiative to build a one-of-kind outdoor amphitheater in the park, located in downtown Milford.

Round up the kids! Family fun will take over Liberty Street between Union and Main streets.  Children will enjoy a variety of activities including a bounce house, inflatable rides, a dunk tank, face painting, and more from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.  After the sidewalk sales close on Saturday, it'll be time for families to enjoy a special outdoor movie on Liberty Street. Beginning at 9:30 p.m., visitors will be singing and dancing to the sights and sounds of 'Disneys Frozen'. Admission to the movie is free and light refreshments will be available for purchase. Lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged.

Everyone likes to snack and this year in addition to Milford's many community restaurants, such as Gravity Bar and Grill, Milford House Bar and Grill, Corattis on Main, and The Burger Joint a variety of food trucks will give hungry patrons many mouthwatering choices with offerings ranging from Treat Dreams to Concrete Cuisine To usher in summer, Milford's Sidewalk Sales weekend will also feature ice cream, slushies, hot dogs, kettle corn and other homemade treats.
