You don’t need an excuse to take the evening off for a little girl time. The Millbrook BIA’s Annual Ladies’ Night Event provides an opportunity to ladies (and gents) of all ages to enjoy an evening of indulgence strolling through the downtown where there will be sights, sounds and tastes for everyone.
This year musical guests Close Enuf, which includes familiar faces from the Rye Street Band, who will provide musical entertainment during the evening. Back again by popular demand is the Fashion Show by Oasis Boutique starting around 6:30, featuring stylish, affordable summer and fall women’s fashions.
Vendors this year include the Crosswind Farms offering their hand crafted Goat Milk, Cheese, and Yogurt products, and Garden of Eden women and baby products. Learn about Millbrook’s newest wedding venue at the former United Church, and catch up with familiar faces from Puddleduck Farm who will be on hand offering fresh flowers and produce. For a different kind of memento from the evening, stop by the Millbrook Gallery where well-known artist David Flett will be drawing caricatures of visitors.
Shops will offer special features, and the street will be filled with vendor booths offering products including pottery, clothing, jewellery, home decor, purses, make-up, flowers, oils, and much more. Shoppers making a purchase from one of the downtown shops will receive a ballot to win the popular Diva Basket filled with Gift Certificates from the Merchants of the Millbrook BIA.
To keep up your stamina, there will be lots of interesting food available from our local food establishments, with some new options as well. This year some of the food providers are taking things to the street where the rest of the action is: the Pastry Peddler is planning an outdoor salad bar and the Legion will also have a take away dining option in addition to their backyard patio and indoor venues. When you need a reprieve, registered massage Therapist Adrianne Colby will be offering mini-massages at a booth on the street.
On August 2nd, make your way downtown for some fun and female bonding, and give a boost to the local economy without breaking the bank. You will find a wide selection of products and services to inspire, a party atmosphere and friendly, familiar faces to help you enjoy a summer evening of food, entertainment and retail therapy in our beautiful downtown. Festivities kick off this year at 4:00pm and run until 9:00pm. KG
