(Washington, D.C.) The American Bus Association announced that the Annual Spring and Fall Milford Green shows of Meet the Artists & Artisans has been designated by an elite tourism industry selection committee as one of the TOP 100 Events in North America for the Millennium. In selecting the Milford based M.T.A. & A. the committee considered the event's broad appeal, accessibility, and a variety of other relevant quality criteria. Because objective quality criteria are used in the judging process, some states and provinces did not receive any TOP 100 designations.
