Hello City of Milan Residents,
There are a lot of fun things happening in Milan on Thursday this week.
The Milan Public Library, in partnership with Milan Parks and Recreation, is hosting the very popular Touch a Truck event from 5 – 7 PM. A favorite with the kids, the event features nearly 35 of our community vehicles and the people who drive them. Touch a Truck has moved to the Milan Middle School this year instead of the originally planned Wilson Park location, as the park is undergoing repairs to the grounds.
Several other events will still take place in Wilson Park on Thursday. The Backstreet Cruizers’ weekly car show is always a hit! Starting at 6 PM, classic cars of all makes, models and ages will cruise into the park while your very own councilman Doug Gilson plays favorite classic tunes.
At 7 PM, the weekly summer concert series features Gemini, a kid-friendly duo. They will have you dancing all night long! The concert is followed by a movie in the park at dusk. This week’s movie is Monster Trucks.
It’s hard to believe that we are already three weeks into July but the good news is that means it’s 3rd Thursdays week! Live music, food trucks, a magic show, an artisan market and beer garden are just a few of things happening downtown during 3rd Thursdays in July. The event runs from 5-8 PM.
While you are walking around downtown, make sure you take a look at the “What I Love About Milan” banners created by Milan students, grades K-5. Post your favorite on the City of Milan or Milan Main Street Facebook page!
I will be downtown and all around the town checking out these awesome events on Thursday. I hope I will see you there!
