Festival returns to roots on N. Willing St. March 14

The City of Milton is making preparations as Scratch Ankle is set to make its historic return to N. Willing Street on March 14, 2013.

Scratch Ankle, which was first held in 1072 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 the organization.

“Non-profits clubs as well as church and school organizations are the original groups who help offer the food and other items which helped to make Scratch Ankle what it was,” said Milton Mayor Guy Thompson, who was one of the originators of the event.

Your non-refundable 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 $25 and with no electricity for $20. Food/Beverage booth spaces are $35 with electricity and $30 for 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 Linsey Williamson with the Milton Community Center, which is located at 5629 Byron St. in Milton or by calling (850) 983-5466.

Vendors must supply their own tables, chairs, and tents. Construction of your booth, at your assigned area, can begin after 11 a.m. on March 14 and must be removed that night following the festival. No vehicles will be allowed on N. Willing St. from 3:30 – 9 p.m.

Also there will be a mandatory meeting on March 12 at 6 p.m. at the Milton Community Center and all groups are required to have a representative present at the meeting. At the meeting they will discuss booth assignments, food service regulations, and other requirements at that time.
