Deck the House! officially kicks off Monday, November 15 and will be open to all Milford residents. The contest will award first, second, and third-place prizes for Best Residential displays. Prizes include gift baskets full of gift cards to local Milford businesses. The first place winner will also be treated to a “Firefighter for a Day” experience, an opportunity for the recipient to tour the station, meet the firefighters, try on fire-fighting gear, eat lunch with the firefighters, and even go for a ride on a fire truck.
