Christmas will come a little early for visitors to downtown Milford when “The Big Reveal” takes place.
On Thursday, Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m., children from across Milford will be able to rip off the wrapping paper covering storefront windows of shops along Main Street, revealing each store’s new holiday window displays.
“On Tuesday, Nov. 13, the merchants will begin to wrap their storefront windows with (wrapping paper) to cover the windows while there are dressing them up for the holidays,” said Ann Barnette, director of the Milford Downtown Development Authority (DDA).
“Then, on Thursday, a countdown will begin at 6:25 p.m. and it will be broadcast on the PA system. At precisely 6:30 p.m., all of the storefront windows downtown will be revealed at the same time.
“Then, people stroll back and forth to look at the merchant’s creations. It’s a lot of fun.”
The event will serve as the kickoff for downtown Milford’s holiday festivities.
On Nov. 24, The Gobbler Gallop walk/run will take place in Milford, followed by the Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce holding its Christmas Parade on Main Street.
Then on Nov. 29, the Milford Business Association will host its Christmas Open House, which will be followed by the Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce hosting its annual Holiday Gala on Dec. 1.
