DAY IN THE LIFE – MILTON

Day in the Life is sponsored by OLG. Check them out on social @OLGToday or visit their website here.

Welcome to Milton! This bustling community has no shortage of amazing events on their Ontario Culture Days roster. Join Kaitlyn Patience, Program Coordinator at Arts Milton, to uncover all the best arts and cultural spaces in their community.

We started off by snagging a backstage look at the Arts Milton Mural project by Jana Marr in partnership with Pflag Halton, and their annual Arts Milton community project by Angela Ferguson and Aparna Ragnekar. If you are in the Downtown Milton area try to catch a look at the finished installations.

While you’re there snap a picture and use the #MiltonCultureDays.

If you are looking for something sweet try your hand at decorating some cupcakes with M5 bakes on October 3, or join Angela Ferguson on October 4th and make some stunning nature art in the park. 

Speaking of yummy treats, you’re not going to want to end the day without grabbing a snack from some of Kaitlyn’s recommendations – Locanda, Pasqualino, and Jay’s Ice Cream.
