UPDATE: The Party in the Park scheduled for tonight in Bombardier Park West has been rescheduled to Sunday evening from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Fireworks will be at 6 p.m. The rest of the schedule remains the same.
Milton’s annual Winter Festival will kick off Friday, Feb. 7 with a party in Bombardier Park West. Enjoy free pizza, s’mores, hot cocoa and a chance to learn some new dance moves courtesy of Dance Works Academy.
Recreation director Kym Duchesneau said the department is also hoping the park’s ice rink will be ready for ice skating, but added it is unlikely.
However, there will be plenty of opportunities to get have some fun in the snow with snowshoeing both Friday night and on Saturday when the town’s conservation commission will lead a snowshoe trip through the town forest. Also on Saturday, Sharp Park will be open for free sledding.
On Sunday, Milton residents will have the chance to ride in a horse-drawn carriage or a sled pulled by dogs.
There’s also an Ice Crystal Ball in which Miltonians aged 2-12 with an adult can do some dancing.
All weekend participating eateries will offer Winter Festival specials. Keep an eye out for signs at each business advertising the special.
