The City of Milton is making preparations for the annual Scratch Ankle Festival to be held Friday, April 10, 2015.
Scratch Ankle, which was first held in 1971 on N. Willing Street, is a gathering of Milton residents to celebrate the city’s historic and rich heritage. To help in this the city is offering non-profit clubs, organizations, and groups home-based in the Tri-County area (Santa Rosa, Escambia, and Okaloosa counties) the chance to participate while serving as a fund raiser for their organization.
“Non-profits clubs as well as church and school organizations are the original groups who helped offer the food and other items which helped to make Scratch Ankle what it was,” said Katie Nichols, the Events Coordinator for the City of Milton Parks Department.
The application fee includes a 10-foot by 10-foot area. This booth space is not transferable to a private vendor, as spaces are for non-profit organizations only. If you need more than one booth space, please submit an application for each.
Booth spaces are available with electricity for $35 and with no electricity for $20. Food/Beverage booth spaces are $45 with electricity and $30 with no electricity.
Areas will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis and please remember that space is limited.
To obtain an application contact Katie Nichols with the Guy Thompson Community Center, formerly known as the Milton Community Center, which is located at 5629 Byron St. in Milton or by calling (850) 983-5466.
Also there will be a mandatory meeting on March 19 at 6 p.m. at the Guy Thompson Community Center and all groups are required to have a representative present at the meeting. In the meeting they will discuss booth assignments and other requirements.
