The City of Milton is making preparations for the annual Scratch Ankle Festival set for March 14 on North Willing St. from 4 to 9 p.m.
Scratch Ankle, which originated in 1972, is an event where local residents gather for an old-fashioned community festival full of music, games and food. Nonprofit groups setup a variety of homemade games, food and information booths in attempt to raise money and awareness for their organizations.
Not-for-profit groups based in Santa Rosa, Escambia and Okaloosa counties can receive a 10-foot by 10-foot area for a minimal fee. Booth spaces for information or games are $20 without electricity and $25 if electricity is needed. Food and beverage booths cost $30 if electricity is not required and $35 with electricity.
“Last year was the first time in a while that the City of Milton organized the Scratch Ankle festival,” said Linsey Williamson, event coordinator. “We were pleased with the turnout and hope that changing the event to a Friday night will bring in more people!”
