Our story begins in March of 2008. Irish Eyes had been operating in Milton for almost two years and was looking for a way to become more involved with this wonderful community. To facilitate that goal The Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade was born. The first year was cold and rainy and there were only a dozen entries. We raised about $500 for the Milton Fire Department and Casa San Francisco. Now here we are six years later and boy have we grown! We now have four benefactors: The Milton Fire Department, Casa San Fransisco, Best Buddies in conjunction with Cape Henlopen High School, and The Milton Chamber of Commerce.  The 6th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade included over 50 entries and with the addition of the Lucky Leprechaun 5K we were able to donate over $10,000 to our benefactors. In 2014 we expect to grow even more. The key to our success has always been the wonderful support of the local businesses and residents. This year is no different! We know we can count on our community to participate again, so we hope to see you Sunday March 9th at 11am for the 2nd Annual Lucky Leprechaun 5K and at 2pm for the 7th Annual Milton St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
