Downtown Milford Inc. will unveil a series of banners, designed by local artists, placed throughout downtown Milford, with a ceremony set for 11 a.m. May 25 at Walnut Street and the Mispillion River.

The custom banners — sail-shaped to reflect Milford’s rich shipbuilding history — were financed by the Mlford Lions Club.
