Festival of Lights

Tis the season! The Town of Milliken annually hosts its Festival of Lights celebration in the Milliken Middle School, allowing for Milliken and surrounding communities to get together and celebrate the holiday season. This day full of holiday cheer begins in the late afternoon inside the school, followed by a small-lighted parade and a chili supper hosted by the Milliken Business Association (MBA).
