Milton Ice Out
Inspired by the hugely popular annual tradition at Joe’s Pond in Danville, VT – Milton will now have its very own Ice Out Contest in 2020! Purchase one or more tickets for one dollar each, and guess the date and time that the ice will “go out” on Arrowhead Mountain Lake. The winner or winners with the closest to the official date & time will receive 50% of the total proceeds from ticket sales. The remaining 50% will then be used to support Milton’s annual Independence Day Celebrations. Tickets can be purchased online, or at participating locations in Milton including Frey’s Family Deli & Convenience beginning February 1, 2020 and until April 1, 2020.

Ice skate right here in Milton for fresh air and exercise! The newly resurfaced outdoor skating rink at Bombardier Park West will be open to the public for recreational skating, as weather conditions allow, daily from dawn to 10 p.m. Lights are now available for after-dark use with a newly installed 60-minute timer, and other improvements are in the works.
