Happy Birthday, America!

Everyone here at MATV wishes you
a fun and safe Independence Day.

When you need a break from the sun and grilling,
why not re-live the We Are Milton Music Fest and Fireworks?
We’ll be playing this concert
ALL DAY LONG on the 4th of July,
and it will also play over the weekend following The Fourth
at 2 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday,
all on the Education Channel (Comcast 22/RCN15).  

And then stick around for the broadcast of the Celtic Sunday concert, as it plays over the weekend at 8 p.m., also on the Education Channel. A really great way to close out a summer evening.


Please note that the MATV studio will be closed on Thursday and Friday July 4th and 5th, in observance of Independence Day.
