Brooklyn Day in Milford was a great success

Friends, neighbors, locals and visitors all came together on Saturday, Aug. 8, for a Block Party with a Brooklyn theme in downtown Milford.

Jorgenson’s at the Dimmick Inn kicked off the day with a traditional stick ball game. Once that was over the streets and sidewalks began to fill with people walking around town to listen to the free music that was being played at many of the local businesses. Jorgenson’s at the Dimmick Inn had the Big Things band that played to a party in the street.

The Pike County Chamber of Commerce, which sponsored this event around town, had a table set up at the block party and gave out “Shop Local” decals, and chamber board members emphasized the importance of shopping local and how it affects a little town like ours. They also ran a 50/50 raffle and gave out directions and entertainment line-ups for other music around town such as The Saron Crenshaw Trio that was playing at Chant Realty and The Frisky Goat, which hosted a band called They Know. Other venues that had music were Sweet Sweet Wonderland, The Milford Dairy Bar, The Flying Pig Tea Room, and the Upper Mill Complex.

All in all it was a great day to be in Milford and a great community event to help local businesses. Thank you to all that came out to show their support.

The Pike County Chamber looks forward to the next community event. For more information on the Pike County Chamber visit or like us on facebook.
