MILFORD — A full day of activities, food and rides normally takes place Memorial Day weekend at Milford Fest.
While Milford Fest and the Memorial Day Parade have been cancelled, three events will be taking place over the weekend. This includes a rock ’n’ roll drive-in concert Saturday, rib-eye steak sandwiches on Sunday and chicken barbecue on Monday.
Milford Fest Committee has announced Quentin Flagg will be presenting a ’50s/’60s rock ’n’ roll and more drive-in concert from 1-2:15 p.m. on Main Street. Parking will be available on both sides of the street with Q singing in the street.
Members of the Milford Fest Committee will be on hand starting at noon to direct concert-goers where to park. All vehicles must be parked before showtime. The committee is asking people to stay in their cars, no mingling and no lawn chairs.
An added bonus is that local restaurants will car hop starting at noon to get orders at each vehicle. Employees will have masks and gloves. Paper menus with limited food options will be provided and kept by individuals.
This is something new Milford and Q are trying. Jump in your vehicles and drive downtown Milford at noon to enjoy a unique drive-in concert.
Milford Fire Department is giving back to the community by making its rib-eye steak sandwich available starting at noon Sunday, May 24. This will be drive-thru only. There will be 500 sandwiches available, for a freewill donation. When the sandwiches are gone, they are gone.
Milford Kiwanis will continue its tradition of barbecue chicken on Memorial Day. Barbecue chicken will be available starting at 11 a.m. at Dollar General. This will be drive-thru only.
