MILTON — This year marks the 225th anniversary of the Town of Milton, which officially separated from the Town of Ballston on March 7th, 1792.

To commemorate the milestone, Milton is hosting a free celebration on August 12, from 3 to 8 p.m., at the Burgess-Kimball Memorial Park on Rowland Street. Free parking is available at the town hall.

The opening ceremony will begin at 3 p.m., followed by children’s races, carnival games, free snow cones, cotton candy and popcorn.

Town Historian Kim McCartney will provide information about Milton’s history. The 2017 Heritage Award will be presented at the end of the opening ceremony.

Eagle Matt Lee, Union and Milton Eagles Fire Departments will be selling hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages. Commemorative T-shirts and a new set of historical postcards will be available. And, of course, there will be cake and ice cream.

Saratoga County Heritage Hunters will help attendees start family trees. Representatives from area organizations will be on hand to talk about their community involvement.

Attendees can see an Eagle Matt Lee fire truck up close, or talk with Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers.

Attendees also can learn how baseball was played in the 1850s, or watch demonstrations by Saratoga County’s Canine Unit.

Every attendee will receive a free raffle ticket for gifts from area businesses and other items. Free commemorative magazines, children’s activity books and balloons will be handed out.

DJ Mark Hersh will provide the musical entertainment, and there will be a free photo booth.
