On the last Sunday of July or the first Sunday of August every alternate year, Millington village celebrates Yorkshire Day.
Formerly known as Millington Parish Fair, in 1993 the Fair had a Produce Show, Exhibiton of Handicrafts and Floral Display, Children`s Craft and Baking Competitions, Pet Show, Children`s Sports, 5 a side Football and a Tug of War,
a Millington Wood Walk and an Evening Barbecue.
Over the years some things have stayed the same, a few have changed, and on Sunday 30th July 1995
Tom`s , "a treat not to be missed", danced outside the Gate Inn at 12.30.
By 1998 (a year was missed), the Parish Fair was better known as Yorkshire Day: the Millington Wood Walk gone, but with the additions of a Hill Run, Treasure Hunt, Children`s Fancy Dress, and the Betty Clarke Village Tea (all long lasting events ... still here for Yorkshire Day 2012).
