CAPE G, Friday, December U - December 17, 1998 - 77 Milton Holly Festival, House TouLr slated for Dec. 12 By Rosanne Pack Recalling Milton's history as a holly capitol of the east coast, the annual Holly Festival is set for Saturday, Dec. 12, and this year's festival is shaping up to be the biggest ever. Festival chairman, Ed Harris said that 108 vendors had regis- tered as of midweek before the festiv.al. Sponsored by the Milton Cham- ber of Commerce, the festival will be spread out in two locations, the Milton Fire Hall on Front Street, and the Goshen Hall on Federal Street. A variety of vendors and food and refreshments will be located at each site. Admission to the festival is free; hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The holly festival will be followed by a revived Milton tradition, a holi- day house tour, which features eight houses and several business- es. The 3 to 7 p.m. tour opens as the festival winds down, provid- ing visitors with a day of shopping followed by visiting and enjoying refreshments in decorated homes. Pre-tour day ticket price is $8; tickets purchased the day of the tour are $10. This year's house tour is sponsored by the new Town of Milton Tourism Com- mittee. The Holly Festival draws crafts people and art and antique dealers from southern Delaware and 'neighboring states; it features fresh greens, handmade gift items, clothing, original art, antiques and homemade baked goods, Harris said the chamber office has been deluged with last minute entries from vendors. He said Hol- ly Festival committee members are very excited about the number of new vendors, including several antique dealers from Maryland, Pennsylvania and the Washing- ton, D.C. "We have vendors like we've never had before; people are go- ing to be so surprised and pleased," Harris said. "We will of- fer things like hot nuts sold out- side the fire hall, roasted peanuts and chestnuts. We have a dealer selling musical tea pots and tea cups; we have hand-blown glass ornaments, clothes and furniture for Barbie TM dolls, Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and many other handmade items." The list of vendors includes those selling homemade jams and jellies, baked goods, ornaments, lamp shades and oak furniture. Harris said some area businesses will have booths, included are It's a Wonderful Loaf and Hollyberry Orchids. Artist Pamela Bounds- Seemans will exhibit her work. Tickets will also be on sale for the Milton Christmas House Tour. Throughout the day, Santa will visit the Holly Festival and stroll in and out of downtown business- es. Children of all ages will receive candy and gifts as the Jolly Old Elf makes his rounds of Milton.
