Every year, the third weekend in September is a great time to be in Milford, Michigan, and this year was no exception.
The weekend kicked off with the Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce Brewed In Michigan event out at the Bakers of Milford restaurant. This event, now in its ninth year, featured beers, ales, meads, hard ciders and wines from over 35 Michigan based craft breweries/wineries. It also had tasty foods from more than 10 local restaurants, as well as music and lots of fun for everyone.
On Saturday, the 41st annual Milford Home Tour started the first day of its two day run which features tours of five local homes, as well as the Milford Historical Museum and the Log Cabin in South Park. The Oak Grove Cemetery was also open with self-guided tours of the grave sites of the many of the people who built or lived in the homes that were on the tour and information on those and the graves of Milford’s WWI veterans was provided by local historian Linda Dangenhardt.
On Sunday the Home Tour continued and the 33rd annual Milford Car Show took center stage all the way down south Main Street and into Central Park. Over 340 cars were in display from 8 AM until 3 PM. There were cars and trucks of every age, description and type – from un-restored antiques to modern street rods. The sights and sounds during the day were enough to satisfy any car enthusiast. In addition, there was an antique tractor show out at the Huron Valley State Bank parking lot featuring tractors from collectibles to day-to-day working farm tractors and equipment.
So, it was a busy and very entertaining weekend in Milford, Michigan; of course, every weekend is great when you live in Milford…just sayin’.
