An expanded Friday night line-up and some popular Saturday events were part of another successful Milford Holiday Weekend. Friday marked the return of the Milford Holiday Fantasy parade after an 11-year absence. United Community Bank won as the "Best Unlit Entry." Milford Communications and the Milford Fire Department were co-winners of the "Parade of Lights" award for Best Lit Entry. Saturday's snowy conditions didn't hamper the turnout for the annual Milford Commercial Club raffle and free soup-and-chili feed. Congratulations to Northwest Iowa Sprinkler as the Soup Division winner. They receive the traveling trophy as the 2018 champion. St. Joseph Catholic Church won the Chili Division and will have traveling trophy honors until Milford Holiday Fantasy 2019. Dan Antoine won the Ugly Sweater Contest for his fashion choice at the soup-and-chili feed. Due to weather conditions, Saturday night's judging for the Milford Municipal Utilities Home and Business Lighting Contest judging was postponed until Thursday night.
