Annual Portuguese Picnic to be Held on July 19-20

The annual Portuguese Picnic – which draws thousands of visitors to Milford each year to celebrate Portuguese culture – will be held on the weekend of July 19-20 on the grounds of the Portuguese Club in Prospect Heights. "It's a great traditional, festive occasion," said Selectmen Chairman Dino DeBartolomeis.

The Board of Selectmen has unanimously approved the club's annual requests: Beer will be sold outside from noon on Saturday until 1 a.m. on Sunday and from noon until 11 p.m. on Sunday. Live entertainment will take place from 8 p.m. on Saturday until 12:15 a.m. on Sunday and again from 7 p.m. to 10:45 p.m. on Sunday. The annual parade will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday in front of Sacred Heart Church and proceed down Main St. to Water St. and end at the club's grounds in Prospect Heights.

Meeting with the board on June 2, Police Chief Thomas O'Loughlin outlined the proposed security measures for the event in terms of local and State Police presence at the Portuguese Club grounds and patrolling the area neighborhoods. Wrist bands will be used to identify people old enough to buy beer, he said. "It's helpful when you move through a crowd of several thousand people," he said.

"We're looking forward to a good event and we think we have the right measures in place," O'Loughlin said. He predicted as many as 10,000 people could attend the festivities on Saturday, July 19.

Anna Pires, the Portuguese Club's secretary/treasurer, said bands from East Providence and from Canada will be featured this year.

After Memorial Day and the Milford High School graduation, "This is the third sign that summer is upon us," said Selectman Brian Murray. "It's always a great event," added Selectman William Buckley.
