COVID-19

In response to COVID-19 and to encourage recommended social distancing, all in-person Milton Recreation programs and events have been cancelled through April 6, as well as the Egg Hunt scheduled for April 11. We have been in contact with program instructors and participants, and will issue refunds for those that have pre-registered and paid for these cancelled programs. Milton Ice Out tickets will continue to be available for purchase online only at miltonvt.gov/recregister through April 1. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation, and cancel further programming if needed. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to providing many more recreation opportunities to the community of Milton in the near future!

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 until April 1, 2020.
