Experience the Milton Roundup Oct. 23.

Get ready for games, rides, shopping, food, entertainment and much more.

MILTON, GA., Oct. 13, 2010 - The City of Milton will hold its fourth birthday party Saturday, Oct. 23 at Birmingham United Methodist Church from 12-6 p.m., and everyone is invited to let loose and have a ball.

"Come out for a great afternoon of family fun," said Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood. "I always look forward to this community event and can't wait to see all my friends and neighbors enjoying themselves."

Parking and admission are free. The first 250 entrants who bring two canned goods for North Fulton Community Charities receive a free T-shirt, which will be available at the main information tent. Come early to take advantage of this offer, as supplies will go fast.

The shirts, featuring a logo designed by Milton resident Andy Furman, will then be on sale for $10 for adult sizes and $8 for youth sizes.

This is the biggest Roundup yet, said Cyndee Bonacci, Milton's Parks and Recreation Director. This year's blowout includes two stages hosting entertainment throughout the day (click here for a full schedule) and 62 vendors offering everything from information on local services and animal rescue groups, to jewelry, to dog biscuits, to holiday decorations, to barbecue, pizza, sandwiches, desserts and anything else that tickles your fancy.

And don't forget the helicopter, pony and hay rides, rock wall, moonwalks, bungee stations and, of course, the event's signature mechanical bull.

"We're especially excited about the two areas for children this year," said Bonacci. "There will be a play area for younger children that focuses on inflatables, plus more challenging fare for the older kids."

Throughout the day the non-profit Milton Public Safety Fund will hold its charity softball tournament, with all proceeds going to the Milton Police and Fire departments. Spots are still open if you would like to participate.
