To celebrate the history of the Milford community, which dates back to 1836, Frontier Days is held each June. This is Milford's biggest and most popular festival, taking place annually for over 50 years. Each year, the festival features lots of unique events and competitions. It all kicks off, of course, with a big parade featuring local marching bands, color guards, and other decorated vehicles. Once the parade ends, the fun begins with live music, a gambling tent, carnival rides and more. If you are feeling competitive, then bring a big appetite and a frog to compete in the Spaghetti Eating Contest and Frog Jumping Contest.
Valley View Nature Pr
On the southwest side of town, where the East Fork and Little Miami Rivers meet, is the 130-acre Valley View Nature Preserve. This preserve is an important part of Milford's local ecosystem, serving to protect the local plant and wildlife species. The park offers many miles of hiking paths, where visitors can admire the natural beauty of Milford. Bicycles are allowed in the park as well, but only on the marked paths. Valley View is also known for its incredibly fertile soil and gardening areas, where locals can rent a plot of their own or help out in the community garden.
