The Third Annual Labor Day Weekend Bash at The Tradesman in Milford was celebrated with roaring success. On Sunday, September 6th hundreds flocked to the local bar, located on Route 140, which transformed into an outdoor concert arena. A state-of-the-art stage and sound system was erected to showcase some of The Greater Milford Music Scene’s musical talent. A variety of food trucks were featured to feed the excited crowd as well as compliment the beverages served up by the Trademan’s highly competent staff.
Hosted and co-organized by local event planner Ray Auger, festivities were kicked off at 1:00PM and ended at 11:00PM with Greater Milford Music Scene’s local bands playing throughout the day and night performing 45 minute sets. The local bands hired to play, donated their compensation to the Daily Bread Food Pantry, which serves Milford, Hopedale and Mendon. Along with a donation from The Tradesman owner and co-organizer Rob DeDominick, $1200.00 was raised. Imn addition to the charitable offerings, a dunk tank was featured to raise money for the Milford Special Olympics. $500 was raised in total.
“There is such immense talent in our area” said local photographer, Tim Rice of timrice/photo in Medway. “It’s a great event that is fun and brings a great sense of community.”
Rob DeDominick was pleased with the crowd turn out and the support from the Milford Town Police and Fire Departments, who assisted with traffic and keeping all patrons safe, the Milford Selectman who attended the event and for allowing the permit and the surrounding businesses who were helpful with providing safe and effective parking for the event.
